Paper Abstract

The design and application of a wide field photomultiplier detection system will be presented. The instrument was designed to detect the luminous entry of rocket borne artificial meteors into the earth's atmosphere. The instrument has been used to provide a real-time correlation between photographic and radar signatures of artificial meteors, "quick-look" data for vehicle performance evaluation, and experimental data on some of the parameters involved in the photo-electric photometry of natural meteors.
