Abstract:

Simultaneous photographic observations of flashes from the ANNA I-B geodetic satellite were made by Air Force PC-1000 cameras during the period September 1963 to January 1964. Geodetic position determinations using these ANNA observations indicate that the PC-1000 camera system used with the intervisible technique is capable of extending geodetic control to a proportional accuracy of better than 1100,000.
