International Space Station SERVIR Environmental Research and Visualization System V1

Abstract: The ISS SERVIR Environmental Research and Visualization System (ISERV) acquired images of the Earth's surface from the International Space Station (ISS). The goal was to improve automatic image capturing and data transfer. ISERV's main component was the optical assembly which consisted of a 9.25 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, a focal reducer (field of view enlarger), a digital single lens reflex camera, and a high precision focusing mechanism. A motorized 2-axis pointing mount allowed pointing at targets approximately 23 degrees from nadir in both along- and across-track directions.
