The Ground Optical Recorder for Intercept Determination GORID, MK- 1A, is a development model of a tracking telescope with increased capability to provide optical attitude, event, and miss-distance as compared to tracking telescopes currently in service at WSMR. Through the choice of three long focal lengths 90, 180, and 360 inches, coupled with a precise tracking mount of considerable dynamic range, the GORID offers a very versatile insttument applicable to a variety of optical recording tasks. Through the use of high resolution retro-fitted shaft-angle encoding equipment, it also could provide space position at altitudes exceeding 100,000 feet.
