Paper Abstract

An image processing system is described which produces in real-time the high resolution HRPT imagery received from the TIROS-N/NOAA-6 satellites. The digital image processing is performed by a programmable Pipeline Processor under control of a P857 computer. The processing modules of the Pipeline Processor are dynamically loaded with transfer function data e.g. to calibrate the infrared data, to carry out the panoramic correction and to add the geographic grid and map accurately. The computer is part of an interactive system to input the processing parameters and the orbital data in a user-oriented way. The control of the station operation during satellite passes, including the (pre)processing, is done automatically following a preprogrammed sequence.
