Abstract:

Report covers the testing and evaluation of the prototype Side-Looking Radar Presentation Viewing and Measuring Instrument to determine its capability for making accurate measurements on radar film transparencies. Data on the accuracy of the instrument are presented. Report concludes a The prototype instrument, in general, meets the requirements as specified. In the event of future development, however, many design improvements will be necessary. b Instrument accuracies for both the right and left side measuring systems are comparable to the required accuracy. c The measuring reticles are inadequate for measuring conjugate points on film transparencies. This is partially due to the frosted glass stage plates. d Either positive or negative film transparencies may be used in the instrument. Author
