Abstract:

Payloads consisting of TMA and sodium were constructed and one was flown from the Eglin Test Range in Florida. Two 70-MM cameras suitable for twilight and night trail photography were designed and developed along with an adjustable camera mount for pointing in azimuth and elevation and a timing console for sequentive automatic exposures. Refinements of existing procedures for obtaining estimated wind velocity data led to the development of photographic projection technique, which can be programmed for use with a computer.
