Abstract
This report details the installation and operation of a precision Optical Signal Recording System for Synthetic Aperture Radar transmissions from SEASAT-A Satellite. The system was for the most part constructed under two contracts with Canadian and U.S. industries. Uncorrelated imagery stored on high density, digital and analog tapes was transposed onto film as interferrograms for optical correlation at DREO. The resulting imagery was acceptable as survey quality for archiving by NAPL. The Remote Sensing Section of DREO coordinated the installation and testing of the Recorder at the Shoe Cove Satellite Receiving Station, Newfoundland. In March 1980 the recorder was removed from Shoe Cove for installation at DREO Ottawa.
