Abstract:

This report gives the details of a reduction procedure for converting the photographic measurements of a rocket in flight into ballistic data pertinent to the rocket trajectory. It opens with a careful description of the geometric problem involved. Transformations between the conventional coordinate systems at the camera are described by means of these, the formulas for the projectiles position are written down. The methods are essentially vectorial throughout. The report concludes with a suggested computation scheme and an example.
