Abstract:

A camera and timing system has been designed and built which, when used in conjunction with the existing Photogrammetric Triangulation System PTS and orbital pre diction programs, will aid the Mathematical Analysis Department in its investigation of the feasibility of calibrating antennas using satellites instead of fly-by aircraft. The cameras are conversions of government surplus K-37 aerial cameras with f2.5 Ektar lenses of 12-inch focal length. The timing system records shutter events to within several milliseconds. This report describes the system and discusses its utilization. Author
