An all-electronic scanning spectrometer system is described which scans the 0.6 to 1 micron spectral region at scanning rates of 10,200 and 1,020 scanssecond with provision for automatic switching from the faster to the slower scanning rate. An image dissector photoelectron multiplier tube is used as the detector. The system is designed for operation in a KC-135 aircraft. A data recording and recovery system is included which enables recording of high-frequency data with readout at lower frequencies without loss of high-frequency information. A scan identification system identifies the relative data acquisition time for each scan. A system calibration is included. Author
