Abstract : The patent describes a gridding and printout device for meteorological data receiver-recorders having a grid pattern on a moving film that is scanned by a flying spot fiber optic cathode ray tube (CRT) scanner and the scan picked up by a photo detector to transform the grid pattern from the film into electrical signals to be superimposed upon or mixed with the electrical signals received from a satellite for display of cloud covers and the like.
