Abstract:

A description is given of the F-415A rotary prism panoramic camera. The F-415A has been optimized for achieving photographic coverage, horizon to horizon, of an area while operating at a minimum of 500 feet above the terrain at an airspeed of 600 knots. The stereo viewing capability is maintained by obtaining a sixty percent overlap of succeeding frames of photography. The F-415 has, as a design objective, a dynamic resolution of 20 lines per millimeter. Author
