Abstract:

A breadboard instrument was developed for the purpose of establishing the feasibility of a novel and unique type of theodolite with far greater dynamic pointing accuracy than is possible with conventional theodolites. This report documents the results of the test and evaluation and the measurement techniques employed. The report discusses design deficiencies of the breadboard instrument along with recommended improvements for future development of an operational instrument.
