Abstract:

This work involved providing scientific, technical and engineering service to design, construct, test and calibrate a new airborne optical system for the Airborne Ionospheric Laboratory. The system measures low light level airglow and auroral emission features, and consists of photometers, spectrometers, all sky intensified monochromatic CCD imaging, and data acquisition and instrument control electronics. The system includes special purpose software to facilitate all phases of instrument operation, data acquisition and recording, and real time data display. This report provides an overview of the complete system, and refers the reader to detailed technical documentation provided separately in the form of user manuals. Keywords Charge coupled devices Photometers Spectrometers, Low light level Imaging CCD camera system Aurora Airglow.
