Abstract:

This paper discusses the major geodetic and geophysical surveys that the Geodetic Survey Squadron is engaged into support DOD programs and particularly the technological improvements that must be made in survey methodology if the ever-increasing requirements of the military weapon systems of the mid- to late 1980s are to be met. Gravity, deflection of the vertical, inertial, astronomic and distance measuring equipment and techniques are all presented in the paper. Many of the discussions in the paper are applicable to precise surveying in the civil area. Author
