Paper Abstract

Pyroelectric detectors have been employed in several spaceborne instruments in recent years. Primarily they have been used in instruments designed to measure the temperature and humidity profile of the earth's atmosphere and to collect data in support of studies of the earth radiation budget. Pyroelectric detectors are being used in similar instruments now in the development and fabrication stages for future launches. Additionally, an infrared radiometer is being designed for the Pioneer-Venus mission scheduled for 1978 which will use pyroelectric detectors.
