PROCESSING CORRECTIONS FOR SKYLAB PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGERY

Camera filters were inadvertently omitted from the six- channel multispectral photographic camera (S190A) during the exposure of the first roll of film from each channel on the final manned Skylab mission. Each of the films was overexposed and degraded as a result of the filter omissions. Explained are the techniques used by the NASA/JSC Photographic Technology Division to evaluate and process those films. These or similar techniques can be used in other photographic multispectral remote sensing applications in which black-and-white infrared and panchromatic or color infrared film are degraded due to loss of filtration or to overexposure. Results prove that data may be salvaged after camera exposure errors are made thus saving the expense of reacquiring data. /Author/
