Instrumentation, Aerodynamics, Test methods, Vibration isolators, Inertial navigation, Meteorology, Safety valves, Orifices, Rota tion, Launching, Aerial cameras, Recovery, Aerial photography, Digital computers, At mosphere, Military intelligence, Haze. Open-ended Terms ANUSD-4, Panoramic cameras, ANUSD-5. The investigation is concerned with U.S. Army airborne reconnaissance systems in the 1960-70 time period, and includes 1 flight test planning for the ANUSD-4 and ANUSD-5 systems, 2 advisory services concerning ANUSD-4 and ANUSD-5 design, and 3 the following phases of performance model development a a method for combining aircraft motions of rotation and translation, b investigation of image motions due to a finite slit width, c computation of atmospheric haze properties, and d comparison of images produced on the image synthesizer with characteristics predicted by the computer.
