Abstract : The report describes the work accomplished and results obtained during an experimental program that evaluated television and slow-scan video transmission techniques as a means to remotely monitor visibility in mountain passes. The purpose of the program was to demonstrate the practicality of this technique to provide VFR pilot advisories in remote mountain passes. Experimental television equipment was installed at Stampede Pass and Boeing Field, Washington, interconnected to transmit pictures via slow-scan techniques over telephone lines from Stampede Pass.
