Abstract:

SIRIUS is a program acronym for a portable Spaceborne Intensifier Radiometer for Imaging Ultraviolet Spectroscopy. The program is a phased continuation of the feasibility effort conducted for the Air Force and reported in the classified Confidential Technical Report AFAL-TR-69-331, dated January 1970. The specific objective of the current program was the development of a brassboard model SIRIUS, incorporating a number of improvements not available in the feasibility model. The major improvements are the use of a completely reflective, wide band, ultraviolet lens the inclusion of a rapid-change image intensifier plug-in-module the elimination of the Hasselblad camera body the capability to use unmodified Hasselblad film magazines and an improved film transport system. The report provides a basic description of the SIRIUS brassboard camera system, operating instructions, and a description of all component sub-systems, supported by separate component part photographs.
