Satellites at Work, Space in the Seventies.
Corliss, William R.
This publication in the "Space in the Seventies" series describes current status and future plans for "working" spacecraft, also called "application satellites." These spacecraft serve the needs of communications, meteorology, geodesy, and navigation. They also enable us to study earth resources from space. Many scientific and technical concepts are presented without an abundance of technical elaboration. Color illustrations and photographs are utilized throughout. (Author/PR)
