Abstract:

The monograph presents an outline of the developments of optical range finders during the war. The extensive bibliography indicates the enormous amount of work which has been completed. No attempt has been made to give a completed description of any single experiment. Research was carried out to improve optical ranging instruments, and studies were made to determine the effects of certain psycho-physiological factors of stereoscopic operators upon the accuracy and variability of ranging. Selection and training of range-finder operators are discussed.
