Abstract:

A number of airborne electronic devices were developed and used during World War II for control of blind bombing and for precise navigation. Many of these devices have been tested for application to problems in surveying and mapping. The results of these tests, particularly with reference to Shoran are so promising that available equipment should be placed in operational use at once and no time should be lost in future development of instruments specifically for survey purposes.
