Abstract

Examples of three different types of electrooptical systems developed by the Honeywell Radiation Center for NASA are described. One is a multichannel infrared (~15 μρ radiometer that will permit temperature and constituent inferences over the globe; it carries a one-year supply of cryogenics for the trimetal infrared detectors. The second is the Apollo telescope mount fine sun sensor, a tracking device making use of solar radiation and the transmission near critical angle of refraction, that will track within ±2 sec of arc to a designated point on the sun. The final example is the Skylab S-192 multispectral (thirteen channels from 0.4 μ to 12 μρ mapper for a variety of earth resources applications.
