DOD Satellite Data
Satellite images archived in KuDA are derived from either the NOAA or the Dept of Defense polar orbiting weather satellites. This dataset contains images that are derived from the Department of Defense's polar orbiting weather satellites. The Department of Defense's DMSP (Defense Meteorological Satellite Program) had three satellites transmitting during 1991 (F8, F9, & F10). These satellites carry a sensor called the Operational Line Scanner (OLS) which is the one source of images for KuDA (the other source of images is NOAA's AVHRR). The OLS is a two-channel sensor with a broadband visible channel and an IR channel.
Data are in TDF and .TAR format.
