Abstract:

A review of PhotoMetrics field and data reduction work for the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory in the DNA-sponsored nuclear effects simulations program and the ARPA-sponsored targets and backgrounds measurements program during the period April 1978-April 1979 is presented. Data flights of USAF NKC- 135 53120 on which PhotoMetrics operated radiometric instruments, the design, fabrication and application of an optical co-aligner for very narrow-angle aircraft instruments are documented, and modifications to an ISIT vidicon camera for auroral imaging are reviewed.
