Abstract:

The experimental program was directed toward the Space Systems Environmental Interactions Technology research to observe and analyze the glow surrounding spacecraft using the AMOS ground-based telescope facility. This unique optical facility was used for acquisition and tracking of the Space Shuttle during overflights of the site. The imagerspectrograph which was used for the data acquisition was similar in design and operation to the AIS instrument described in the earlier report.
