1 July 1971 Photometric Reduction of Lunar Orbiter Video Tapes
Author Affiliations +
The development of a system for the photometric reduction of Lunar Orbiter video magnetic tapes to obtain high-resolution topographic information of proposed Apollo landing sites was initiated by the Mapping Sciences Branch at the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC). The task of system design, hardware development, and integration (begun in late 1965) was assigned to the Information Systems Division of MSC The Computation and Analysis Division provided analyses of the programs and the development and operation of the system. This paper describes the system, its operational features, the special analysis techniques involved, results obtained to date, and continuing investigations.
