Paper Abstract

Many different sophisticated instruments are used throughout the world in ground based, satellite and rocket studies of the visible spectrum of the aurora and airglow. Three different instruments, the all sky camera, spectrophotometer and meridian scanning photometer, serve as examples of the types of devices representing the photographic, spectrophotometer and photometric categories of instruments currently in use. The extensive application of digital techniques, solid state electronics, and minicomputers emphasizes the concept of system development that combines data acquisition and the capability for real time data reduction and analysis.
