Autonomous meridian scanning photometer for auroral observations

Johnston, S.F. (1989) Autonomous meridian scanning photometer for auroral observations. Optical Engineering, 28(1), pp. 20-24.




The system design of an automated meridian scanning photometer developed for the Canadian Auroral Network is described. The instrument operates year-round in an Arctic environment. The instrument has considerable on-board processing capability for data analysis, communication functions and fail-safe operation.
