1 March 1965 Vidicon Applications for Space-Borne TV Cameras
Author Affiliations +
Abstract
The feasibility of TV in satellites and space probes has been demonstrated in 8 TIROS vehicles. Other usages are discussed including other weather observational satellites, space astronomy for stellar and solar measurements, uses in manned and unmanned lunar missions, and biological observations. Solutions to problems pertaining to the space environment and and the design choices in using vidicons for remote instrumentation are discussed. The direction of anticipated growth and development are outlined.
