Abstract:

A facility was established to demonstrate the adequacy of 1973-1974 state-of-the art television sensors to detect faint spacecraft so as to confirm that technology would be available for a new generation of optical surveillance cameras. This facility is described in detail and the detail and the results discussed of testing an ebsicon Silicon Intensified Target camera system, along with associated MTI devices, for detection of stellar and satellite sources.
