Description : The ITOS-B meteorological satellite was designed to provide improved operational infrared and visual observations of earth cloud cover for use in weather analysis and forecasting. Secondary objectives included obtaining both solar proton and global heat balance data on a daily basis.
A malfunction in the second stage launch vehicle caused the spacecraft to reenter the earth’s atmosphere about 1 hr after lift-off.
