Paper Abstract

The system of video surveillance during active rocket experiments in the Polar geophysical observatory "Tixie" and studies of the effects of “Soyuz” vehicle launches from the "Vostochny" cosmodrome over the territory of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is presented. The created system consists of three AHD video cameras with different angles of view mounted on a common platform mounted on a tripod with the possibility of manual guiding. The main camera with high-sensitivity black and white CCD matrix SONY EXview HADII is equipped depending on the task with lenses "MTO-1000" (F = 1000 mm) or "Jupiter-21M " (F = 300 mm) and is designed for more detailed shooting of luminous formations. The second camera of the same type, but with a 30 degree angle of view. It is intended for shooting of the general plan and large objects, and also for a binding of coordinates of object on stars. The third color wide-angle camera (120 degrees) is designed to be connected to landmarks in the daytime, the optical axis of this channel is directed at 60 degrees down. The data is recorded on the hard disk of a four-channel digital video recorder. Tests of the original version of the system with two channels were conducted during the launch of the geophysical rocket in Tixie in September 2015 and showed its effectiveness.
