Abstract : The application to satellite technology of the contemporary television system increases the sensitivity of observation by about 100 times, compared to ordinary photography. Once such a system is established, a satellite can be tracked and its position recorded. The television camera is described as having an objective lens with a diameter of 80 mm; at the photocathode the image taken appears with a scale of 17' per 1 mm, which is sufficient for application to regulation and control of satellites.
