Paper Abstract

The Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrographic Imager (SSUSI) sensors that will be carried by USAF Defense Meteorological Satelite Program Block 5D3 satellites can measure FUV emission in five bands across the disk and onto the limb. An account is presently given of the environmental data records that are to be derived from SSUSI's dayglow disk data, as well as to projections of the disk viewing capabilities of the SSUSI system for any sum of Lyman-Birge-Hopfield bands excluding the regions around 130.4, 135.6, and 149.3 nm. The findings obtained are independent of any assumed model atmosphere.
