Abstract : The invention relates to theodolites and refers more particularly to a cinetheodolite having improved accuracy. Theodolite principles are widely used for tracking guided missiles. Instruments using these principles are used mainly for determining elements of trajectory. These elements are position and velocity coordinates. The object of the invention is to provide an optical theodolite which overcomes many of the disadvantages of the prior devices and to provide an optical theodolite which eliminates the effects of dynamic error sources.
