Abstract : This report describes an optical instrumentation system of high metric accuracy. Early photogrammetric work leading to the development of this system is mentioned briefly. The optical and mechanical characteristics of the position measuring system and the mechanical and electronic details of the synchronization system are presented. The theory underlying the data acquisition and reduction is described briefly and methods of measurement and computer programming are outlined. Selected examples of application of the system are presented to illustrate the wide range of usefulness. (Author)
