Abstract:

In April 1975, MITRE personnel visited the MAC air cargo terminal at Dover Air Force Base to test the possibility of Photographing shipping labels of cargo being unloaded at the truck dock. This report describes the photographic technique used, the image quality obtained, and the problems encountered. Various factors are cited that contributed to the few instances of poor image quality. Statistics are presented relative to data items sometimes missing from shipping labels, to assist in future comparison of photography with other alternative modes of data capture at the truck dock.
