A new electro-optic radiance distribution camera system is described. This system is based upon cooled CCD array cameras and includes a multi-channel irradiance meter, tilt and roll sensors, flux-gate compass and several auxiliary channels. The system is controlled with an internal '386Sx computer and includes a 450 MByte hard drive for image storage. Data archiving is performed through a SCSI interface to an external 1 .4 GByte DAT tape drive which is attached when the instrument is on deck. Some preliminary calibration data on the system is also included.
