Abstract : In the late 1960's and the early 1970's, following along with the development of such modern scientific techniques as electronics technology, information recording, as well as information transmission technologies, and so on, a type of photoelectric imagery remote sensing technology associated with a combination of traditional optical mechanics and electronics--CCD imagery remote sensing technology--quietly (illegible). This is the third leap in imagery remote sensing technology. As far as the appearance of CCD cameras is concerned--in particular, CCD camera applications in astronavigational military reconnaissance--astronavigational imagery reconnaissance was pushed toward new developmental stage. Due to the special characteristics and superiority of CCD cameras in and of themselves, once they were introduced to the world, they then became, therefore, an important objective pursued in the development of astronavigational reconnaissance by various space faring nations--in particular, the U.S. and the Soviet Union. For the last over ten years, development in leaps and bounds was achieved.
