The Jet Propulsion Laboratory Lunar Program, which is supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has two major projects underway. These are Ranger and Surveyor. The Ranger Project is in the flight stage whereas Surveyor is still in hardware development. The equipment of Ranger 3, 4, and 5 spacecrafts includes a radar altimeter to obtain radar reflection data, and a vidicon camera to obtain close-up pictures of the moon's surface. The data obtained in these flights will thus be available for analysis and comparison using the techniques outlined in this thesis.
