Simbay Stellar Photographic Data Supplement on Microfiche

NSSDCA ID: ASVI-00013

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1972-04-20 to 1972-04-25

Description

This data set consists of microfiche of experimenter-supplied data correlating the laser altimeter with the panoramic and metric photography taken by the simbay photographic equipment on board Apollo 16. The data consist of -- (1) mapping camera subsystem data block information (frame no., exposure times, and altitude), (2) explanations of data terms, (3) laser altimeter operations, (4) panoramic camera exposure times, (5) photographic ephemeris, (6) Apollo 16 timing system with tables of conversion from the Apollo timing system to UT, (7) photographic operations, (8) burns and events, and (9) camera calibration data for each camera and laser altimeter. These data may be used to correlate altimeter rangings with lunar surface features.
