Apollo 12 launch EECOM loop?
« on: July 10, 2023, 02:56:01 am »
This might be off-topic, at least for now, but does anyone know if the Apollo 12 launch EECOM loop (and maybe GNC too) is available somewhere?

Unfortunately, those tapes are yet to be digitized. It will happen at some point but probably not for years.

Thank you for the information, I appreciate it. At the same time, it is disappointing that this digitization is not a higher national priority. Particularly as analog media can degrade over time.

As I understand it, a big NSF grant was awarded to begin the digitization process. The grant was recently extended to August 2024, so it's still in progress.
