The vidicon camera system consisted of a light-weight camera head and camera electronics package. This system provided video signals of images observed from the satellite. The satellite spin rate provided the scanning motion for the camera system. The continuous video signal along the orbit path provided a daily coverage of a substantial portion of the northern hemisphere.
