Abstract:

This technical report discusses the mathematical procedures developed for the reconstruction of a space object from measurements made on photographic images. Two shapes are considered. One is modified cylinder which has two hemispheres attached to the ends of a cylinder, and the other is a general ellipsoid. In the case of a modified cylinder, a simple solution exists under a stipulated condition. However, in the case of an ellipsoid, apparently no general solutions exist. A method of reconstruction can be obtained under a set of simplifying conditions. Author
