This report contains an outline of some of the experimental measurements and theoretical considerations which are reqxiired for the calculation of the emissivity of nitric oxide. Because of lack of suitable apparatus, the experimental part of the program was restricted to the determination of apparent absorption coefficients for the fundamental vibration-rotation band of nitric oxide. Theoretical calculations of emissivity were originally suggested by Dr. Martin Summerfield. Ihe present calculations were made by the use of an approximate procedure which has been developed recently at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory by S# S. Penner for the determination of the emissivity of pure diatomic gases.
