Abstract : This circumferential vertical perspective aerial camera makes it possible, with one aerial shot, to include a larger area than conventional cameras. This is accomplished by using two objectives, one of which yields a vertical image, and the second, with the help of a double image prism, yields a perspective veiw of the terrain; also, the diaphragm has a revolving segmented, sagittal-shaped aperture. The camera can be used for mapping ice-floes, various types of hydrologic surveys (currents, ice drifts, sea swells), coordinating aerial survey routes and aerogeophysical surveys, and also for land and air navigation.
