Background

Dr. Don Miller, Hank Cantrell, and Farrell Winder developed and tested the MIR SSTV System.  Four systems were built at Don's Wyman Research, Inc. facility. Miles Mann arranged to deliver the systems to Russia, and traveled there to train the Cosmonauts in how to operate the equipment.

With the success of the Mir System, Miles and the MAREX group proposed a new software system to ARISS, for deployment on the new International Space Station.  This software is called "SpaceCam 1", and was created by Jim Barber. Jim and his partner Bill Montgomery (VE3EC) developed the  ChromaPIX system, which is used worldwide. Testing, simulation, and QA are provided by MAREX members, and the SpaceCam Testing Group.

The necessary hardware interface between the SpaceCam 1 software and the laptop computers aboard the ISS is being provided by Lou McFadin, (W5DID) ISS-HAM Hardware Manager of the ARISS Group.
