WOSSAC Satellite Tape Store

Within the WOSSAC Archive is an enormous collection of over 10,000 open reel satellite tapes holding data stretching back to the early days of planetary imaging. These datasets are being processed and copied onto the Cranfield fileservers in modern image processing format such that they can be made available, respecting Copyright, to researchers and other interested parties along with other Wossac materials. Our intention is to develop a searchable catalogue of this imagery here online.

Here is a taster of the data we hold, click each image to see more detail. Hold the mouse over each image for its details.
