    MOS-1 VTIR CCT Format Specifications

    The MOS-1 digital products are recorded on Computer Compatible Tapes (CCTs) in a format that is conformed to the Standard Family Format (SFF) conventions. This format has been recommended by the Landsat Technical Working Group (LTWG) and the Committee on Earth Observation Systems (CEOS). The SFF allows to read the same software data on CCTs that have been generated by different stations.
