Abstract:

The Soviets have created the Meteor meteorological system which has for more than a half-year provided information characterizing the weather situation over the entire globe. The first research satellites were the Cosmos 14 and Cosmos 23. Experimental equipment development tests were carried out for the entire system the results were embodied in the Cosmos 122 launched 25 June 1966. Cosmos 144 and Cosmos 156 were launched 28 February and 27 April 1967, respectively. The weather satellites have solved scientific problems related to space engineering. They have demonstrated the feasibility of protracted, stable solar battery performance in space and under sharply fluctuating temperature conditions and thermal shocks when entering and leaving shadowed areas.
