Abstract : The Whole Sky Imager (WSI) is a ground-based digital imaging system for assessment of cloud cover over the full upper hemisphere. Using a fisheye lens and a slow scan CCD sensor, it acquires imagery under daylight, moonlight and starlight conditions. This contract funding enabled Marine Physical Laboratory to provide additional software development and documentation support for a new Whole Sky Imager which was delivered to the Air Force in December 95. The primary enhancements included several additions to the networking options, and delivery of a new 'Operations Manual' and 'Theory of Operations Manual'.
