The Mars Observer Camera (MOC) consists of three integrated optical subassemblies (one narrow-angle and two wide-angle cameras) with common electronics, designed to take high-spatialresolution pictures of the surface of Mars and lower-spatial-resolution, synoptic coverage of the planet’s surface and atmosphere. It incorporates several advanced technologies, including the use of graphiteiepoxy structural materials, 32-bit microprocessors, 1 08-bit digital buffers, and high-speed custom… CONTINUE READING
