AbstractIn March of 1982 4700 temperature measurements were made of the space shuttle lower surface during its entry from orbit. These measurements were taken in less than 7 ms from a distance of 52 km (32 miles) by an electro-optical “pyrometric” system aboard the NASA C141 Kuiper Infrared observatory. The total system is described briefly with the detector amplifiers, system grounding and noise described in detail.
