Abstract:

This report covers the engineering test of the Miniaturized Tellurometer. The tests were conducted for the purpose of determining the suitability of the item for the Corps of Engineers and Army use. This report concludes that the miniaturized tellurometer meets both the objective and the military characteristics of the project card except as noted. The miniaturized tellurometer is capable of yielding accurate measurements over distances of from 100 meters to at least 40 kilometers during all weather conditions both day and night. The miniaturized tellurometer is capable of measuring distances under adverse weather conditions over rugged terrain with considerably less time and personnel than is possible using conventional taping methods. The miniaturized tellurometer is suitable for the measurement of baselines, traverse and trilateration surveys conducted by the Corps of Engineers and Field Army. Author
