The Naval Research Laboratory's Far Ultraviolet Cameras Experiment is part of an ongoing project to develop a means for real time space based monitoring of the upper atmosphere. The purpose of this paper is to develop a method by which useable data can be extracted from the images obtained from the cameras. The required output is an intensity profile of the light in the band of the camera as a function of observation zenith angle. From this data future analysis can be done to determine the spatial distribution and density of the upper atmosphere. The long term application of this project is to develop a method for using space based imaging of the ionosphere to provide real time radio frequency propagation analysis
