An investigation of data compaction methods based on techniques for multivariate statistics, time series analysis and coding theory is described. The data are multichannel signature-type data collected in the course of large-scale scientific experiments. Several advanced reduction techniques were applied and tested on data consisting of three physical measurement channels plus ephemeris information from the Injun V Satellite. The data occupy 1800 reels of 2400-ft tape, providing considerable motivation to determine suitable compaction methods.
