- The configuration and functions of the ITOS D and E system are described. The system will expand the operational capability of the basic TIROS M/ITOS system. The ITOS D and E mission will utilize the capabilities of the two-stage DSV 3N-6 Delta launch vehicle to place the ITOS D and E spacecraft into a circular, near-polar, sun synchronous orbit at 790 nautical miles altitude. The ITOS D and E will provide the following primary data: (1) visible daytime observations of cloud cover, (2) daytime and nighttime observations of cloud cover as detected from radiance in infrared spectrum, and (3) vertical temperature profile of the atmosphere on a global basis for data processing. In addition, the ITOS D and E system will provide secondary data comprising solar proton density measurements obtained throughout the orbit.
