Abstract:

As a result of investigations it was established that aircraft camera of the AFA-TEU type possesses following special features 1. It allows us to do aerial photographic survey on all scales required for composition of topographic maps. 2. It expands possibilities of application during aerial photographic survey of highly sensitive and also colored and spectrozonal photomaterials. 3. It allows us to obtain aerial negatives with practically constant integral density and increased photographic quality and to automate their photolaboratory processing. 4. It ensures higher quality of straightening of aerofilm in a plane. 5. It increases the accuracy of measurement of a systematic part of the deformation, taken into consideration with stereophotogrammetric processing. The results of experiments with the AFA-TEU-140 showed that the construction of the aircraft is promising both with respect to further automation of processes of exposure, and also increased accuracy of the aerophotograph. The decrease of dynamic overloads in construction of the shutter and cassette led to increase of reliability of work of the aircraft camera. Author
