    Clementine (officially called the Deep Space Program Science Experiment (DSPSE)) was a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO, previously the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization, or SDIO) and ed on Janu , the objective of the mission was to test sensors and spacecraft components under extended exposure to Rocket: Titan II(23)G.   While the major axis of the lunar gravity field is aligned in the Earth-Moon direction, the major axis of topography is displaced from this line by approximately 10 deg to the cast and intersects the farside 24 deg north of the equator.

    Clementine was a joint project between the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization and NASA. The objective of the mission was to test sensors and spacecraft components under extended exposure to the space environment and to make scientific observations of the Moon and the near-Earth asteroid Geographos. Clementine was launched on 25 January at . a The A/D resolution of the lidar receiver was 14 bits (40 m per bit), whereas all of the cameras had a resolution of 8 bits. b The laser used for the lidar was an Nd-YAG that produced a pulse of radiation with a duration of.

Measuring Lunar Topography The Clementine Lidar The Clementine lidar is shown in Figure 1, and its specifications are given in Table 1. This laser transmitter, which was built by McDonnell-Douglas Space Systems Division in St.

Louis, contained a neodynium-doped yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) source that produced lasing at a wavelength of Size: 1MB. Range measurements from the lidar instrument carried aboard the Clementine spacecraft have been used to produce an accurate global topographic model of the Moon.

This paper discusses the function of the lidar; the acquisition, processing, and filtering of observations to produce a global topographic model; and the determination of parameters that define the fundamental shape of the by: from the Clementine lidar to control point elevations from the Apollo laser altimeters indicates that measured relative topographic heights generally agree to within m over the maria.

Topography of the Moon. The topography of the Moon has been measured by the methods of laser altimetry and stereo image analysis, including data obtained during the Clementine mission.

The most visible topographic feature is the giant far side South Pole-Aitken basin, which possesses the lowest elevations of the Moon.

Clementine was a joint project between the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization and NASA. The objective of the mission was to test sensors and spacecraft components under extended exposure to the space environment and to make scientific observations of the Moon and the near-Earth asteroid Geographos.

Clementine has provided the first complete set of high-resolution images of the south polar region of the Moon, revealing especially rugged topography (Shoemaker et al., ). An area of up to 15, kmz remained in shadow during a full lunar rotation and is a promising area for location of permanent ice by: Description.

This data set contains lunar topographic profiles and related information determined by the Clementine LIDAR experiment. The data consists of a table of laser range profiles along each observational pass, a 70th degree and order spherical harmonic model of lunar topography, and digital 2-D grids of lunar topography at 1 x 1 degree and X degree resolution.

The ``faster, cheaper, better'' Clementine spacecraft mission mapped the moon from February 19 to May 3, Global coverage was acquired in 11 spectral bandpasses from to nm and at resolutions of m/pixel; a thermal-infrared camera sampled ~20% of the surface; a high-resolution camera sampled selected areas (especially the polar regions); and a lidar.

The Clementine Lunar Topography Archive contains topography data acquired by a laser ranging instrument (LIDAR) onboard the Clementine spacecraft while it orbited the Moon. DATA_SET_DESCRIPTION Data Set Overview ================= The Clementine spacecraft included a Light Imaging Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) instrument.
