Abstract:

Two measurements systems have been completed to provide the capability to make high resolution spatial and temporal measurements of infrared structures of the aurora airglow. The two systems are 1 GAZER Graphics Aided Zonal Energy Recorder - a low light level, wide angle TV imaging and recording system with the capability of storing information regarding absolute intensity levels of the image for subsequent recall and analysis and 2 Scanning IR Radiometer - a microprocessor controlled tracking mount which drives an IR radiometer through programmable repeatable scan patterns to provide sky maps of the temporal and space small and large scale inhomogeneities.
