Administrative and Biographical History

Donald E. Wilson began his career at the NASA Ames Research Center as a member of the Entry Simulation Team (Code ESB) in 1962. From 1963 to 1971, Wilson worked in the Materials Research Branch (Code SVM) of the Vehicle and Environment Division (Code SV) under the Astronautics Directorate (Code S). It was renamed the Materials Science Branch (Code STS) and reassigned to the Thermo- and Gas-Dynamics Division (Code ST) in 1972, when the Vehicle and Environment Division, which had supported the Apollo missions, was eliminated. During the course of his materials science research, Wilson co-authored technical reports on the thermal analysis of polymeric materials, as well as a study on low temperature cooling techniques.
In August 1972, NASA headquarters chartered Ames with the lead center responsibility for the remote sensing aircraft program. The Applications Aircraft Support Program Office (AASPO), managed by Edward W. Gomersall, was established in December 1972 to provide aerial support for earth observation satellites, remote sensing applications, and damage assessments. The AASPO fleet included two U-2 aircraft, which were made available for research purposes by the U.S. Air Force and arrived at Ames in 1971. (The civilian version of U-2 aircraft was named ER-2 for earth resources.) Wilson was assigned to the Evaluation and Analysis section of the AASPO, also known as the Applications Aircraft and Future Programs Office. In 1974, Wilson assumed the role of Technical Assistant with the Thermo- and Gas-Dynamics Division.
In 1976, Wilson was assigned to the User Applications Branch (Code SEA) of the Airborne Missions and Applications Division (Code SE), headed by Dale R. Lumb. The branch was renamed the Technical Applications Branch in 1979. Ames hosted the Western Regional Remote Sensing Conference in 1979 and 1981 to aid in the transfer of operational capabilities for the utilization of remote sensing technology for earth resource management among state and local governments, private industry, and universities.
In 1979, Carter’s Presidential Directive 54 initiated the transfer of Landsat operations from NASA to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Two years later, President Reagan proposed the termination of all regional commissions, as well as reduced funding to technology transfer programs, which accelerated the commercialization of satellite operations. In response, Ames underwent a major reorganization in 1984 in which the Airborne and Missions Applications Division was removed. Wilson was transferred to the Medium Altitude Missions Branch (Code OMM) in the Science and Applications Aircraft Division (Code OM) under the Director of Flight Operations and retired on April 22, 1988.

The Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS), renamed Landsat in 1975, was equipped with remote sensors, including high resolution multispectral scanner systems (MSS), return beam vidicon (RBV) imaging systems (used on Landsat 1, 2 and 3), and thematic mapper instruments (first used on Landsat 4), designed to acquire data to categorize Earth’s surface. The first satellite, ERTS-1, was launched in 1972, and Landsat 4 was launched in 1982. Landsat is the longest running enterprise for the acquisition of imagery of the earth from space.

Scope and Content

The Donald E. Wilson Earth Resources Survey Program Papers (4 cubic feet) includes reports, project plans, proposals, consortium agreements, meeting minutes, memos, correspondence, newsletters, maps, lithographs, photographs, and slides documenting demonstrations of useful applications of remote sensing data to manage earth resources. The collection also contains records that cover the transfer of computing technology to establish Landsat imagery analysis capabilities within local and state agencies in the western United States, primarily in the Pacific Northwest region. The collection is arranged in six series that record the administration and progress of the Landsat applications programs with a focus on NASA’s role in research and the commercial potential for operational technology programs.
The first series documents the activities of the Applications Aircraft Support Programs Office in the early 1970s. An earth resource survey cost benefit study presented to the Office of Management and Budget was vital to the national decision to pursue an operational earth remote sensing system. Land use maps and classification systems are also included.
The second series, Pacific Northwest Region, contains records encompassing Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. With its inception in 1972, the Pacific Northwest Regional Commission (PNRC), which consisted of the governors and a federal co-chairman appointed by the President, was charged with setting priorities and approving projects that contributed to the economic development of the region. The PNRC established Land Resources Inventory Demonstration Projects (LRIDP) to demonstrate the utility of Landsat imagery analysis to earth resource management. The Landsat Application Program (LAP) was later conceived as a three-year continuation of LRIDP to establish full in-state operational capability for Landsat data analysis systems. In 1974, the PNRC formed the Technology Transfer Task Force, composed of representatives from the three states, NASA, and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), to oversee LAP, specifically to make recommendations, as well as monitor and coordinate technology transfer activities. NASA’s role was to provide technical consulting and assistance in methodology for the users in state and local agencies. This included some support of the Western Regional Applications Program (WRAP) and Application System Verification and Transfer (ASVT) projects, both of which comprise a relatively small number of items in this collection.
The third series, Land Resources Inventory Demonstration Projects / Landsat Applications Program, represents the majority of the collection. It contains project proposals, reports, letters, and consortium agreements with universities documenting demonstrations of the use of Landsat data for applications to land use management, urban development planning, range surveys, and inventories of forestry, game, and water resources. Documents associated with establishing image analysis systems are also included.
The fourth series, Landsat imagery, contains lithographs of RBV (return beam vidicon) images, primarily illustrating the classification of Tacoma land use intensity and Portland census tracts.
The fifth series contains the entire set of the Pixel Facts newsletter, which provided updates on Landsat project activities from 1975 to 1979.
The sixth series includes miscellaneous papers not filed with specific programs.
Supplemental aids to the collection are available on the NASA Ames History Office website.
