In the year 2000 and beyond, space applications and science missions will require data systems that provide near-real time information availability and cost-effective analysis and distribution of information to the user. Key to the solution of this problem will be high-capacity ground-based and onboard data storage capability, compatible with expected mission requirements. During the 1990's numerical computation will play an increasing role in aerospace applications. High-capacity on-line and archival storage is an essential element of computational aerodynamics and large-scale weather modeling. This paper will discuss aerospace requirements and applications for high storage capacity optical disc systems.
