dc.description.abstractA real time data compression unit was designed and fabricated for the Radio Astronomv Explorer Lunar Mission Antenna Aspect Camera. The camera takes a panoramic view of spacecraft, moon, etc. of ±35 degrees by 360 degrees. This data compressor combined information reduction and redundancy reduction. The information reduction was accomplished by subsampling (used every fourth line): and the redundancy reduction was accomplished by an adaptive run-length encoder. The adaptive run-length encoder used a zero-order predictor. Two different maximum run-lengths were used with two different data formats. Selection of the operating format depended on the sampled gray level compared to a fixed threshold. Statistical data and images indicate that the redundancy reduction technique yields a compression ratio of 8:1. Thus a combined compression ratio of 32:1 was obtained on an entire panoramic view.
