Digital Imagery

DIGITAL IMAGERY

Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana
MAS collected this natural color composite where the water has been enhanced by masking (removing) the land portion of the image.
Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana
MAS collected this color infrared composite where the land mask has been removed and "added" back into the previous image.
Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana
MAS collected this mid-wave infrared color composite...
Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana
MAS collected this thermal infrared psuedo-color image showing the cooler Mississippi River mixing with warmer waters in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mount Saint Helens
This image acquired by the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) shows the extent of the devastation caused by the eruption in 1980.
Hills Of Jornada
This image shows a complex geological landscape that was collected by MASTER aboard the B-200 during a low-altitude pass near Jornada, New Mexico.
Marple Fire
This image was captured in response to the raging 25,000-acre wildfire northwest of Los Angeles in 1996.
Fog Bank Over the Sawatch Range
This false-color composite showing the Arkansas River Gorge in Colorado was acquired by MAS during the SUCCESS Campaign in 1992.
Meteor Crater
A (night time?) thermal image of a large impact crater located in the desert near Winslow, Arizona...(acquired by ?).
Snow-Capped Alaska Range
This image was collected by MAS during the Alaska-April95 Campaign, part of NASA's effort to map snow and ice from an aerial platform.
Lake-Effect Clouds
This image of clouds formed by cold wind whipping over a warmer Lake Erie captured by MAS during the WINCE Campaign in 1997.
Oakland Hills Fire
A (thermal composite? which snesor?) image of a raging urban fire in 1991 that destoyed hundreds of homes in the hills above Oakland, California.
Flooding In The Midwest
A color infrared image capturing the the confluence of Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois rivers by (MAS? MODIS?) during the devasting floods of 1993.
Raging Wildfire
The Yellowstone Fire in 1998 was the largest and costliest fire in the Park's history, shown here by MAS in both natural color and thermal infrared composite.

Decommissioned Systems

DECOMMISSIONED SYSTEMS

Thematic Mapper Simulator (TMS)
This Daedalus AADS-1268 scanner was the airborne test-bed for the LandSat TM instrument and the precursor to our 50-channel multispectral instruments.
A-4 Configuration
RC-10 and HR-732 camera systems
Dual RC-10
Wildheerbrugg 9x9" format metric cameras
IRIS-II Panoramic
Blah, blah, blah
Satellite Telemetry And Return Link (STARLink)
This cutting edge technology allowed the aircraft to send instrument data back to Mission Control and communicate with the pilot in real-time via satellite.
