Abstract

The cooperation of Western and Eastern countries in the development of the VEGA space probe's scienfitic instrumentation to carry out in situ measurements on Halley's comet is described with emphasis on the Hungarian made microcomputer TV system whose task is to recognize the comet and its nucleus and to control the platform, to take pictures and to transmit them to earth. The ground support equipment of the central data acquisition system and other scientific equipments have also been developed in Hungary. The requirements and difficulties are mentioned which had to be faced during the design of instruments working in free space.
