AbstractNew generation satellites such as ERTS present a new challenge to the data recording industry. Continuous wideband data creates an enormous storage/retrieval problem. Recently developed high density tape storage solves the volume problem but does not provide fast access. Clearly, some cartridge type device is required. A similar problem faced the broadcast T.V. industry. Cartridge equipment was developed to allow automatic programming of short segments. This paper describes application of this technology to present and future data storage requirements. With the technique described, ERTS data can be segmented into blocks of ten frames each and stored in easily accessed tape cartridges.
