Abstract:

The Cosmos 97 satellite contained an ammonia-molecule laser as a frequency generator for application in determining the satellites trajectory. The laser operates on solar batteries, is set up on the external surface of the satellite, covered with a sheathing and connected with apparatus inside the satellite through hermetic leads. Its operation is controlled through a special command radio link from groundpoints and autonomically, through a program time device. Author
