The data presented represents seven flights of the research vehicle. The objective of the flight program was to obtain sky background data over various types of terrain at various times of the day. Two of the six contract flights were made over Edwards Air Force Base, California. Three flights were made over the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California, and one flight was made over the Pacific Ocean. Details of each flight are given in this part immediately preceding the corresponding raw data. During the flights, the Spectrophotometer measured the following Spectral radiance of the sky between 350 nanometers and 750 nanometers Sky brightness Sky polarization Infrared radiance Albedo of the earth and Temperature inside the Spectrophotometer.
