• A NEW GENERATION OF DATA RECORDERS FOR REMOTE SENSING GROUND STATIONS

      Kayes, Edwin (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1995-11)
      Magnetic tape is the primary medium used to capture and store unprocessed data from remote sensing satellites. Recent advances in digital cassette recording technology have resulted in the introduction of a range of data recorders which are equally at home working alongside conventional recorders or as part of more advanced data capture strategies. This paper shows how users are taking advantage of the convenience, economy and efficiency of this new generation of cassette-based equipment in a range of practical applications.
