The NASA Electronic Still Camera systemThe Electronic Still Camera (ESC) project has been implemented in its first form for space shuttle operations. The system is composed of three components: (1) a hand-held battery-operated fully digital and programmable high-resolution camera; (2) a laptop-computer-based playback/downlink unit for onboard image processing; and (3) a ground station capable of receiving shuttle data, processing images, producing hardcopies, and distributing the data and hardcopies to end users. The advantages of the ESC system over film and satellites are discussed, and system specifications are summarized.
