Abstract : For the survey of the final MISTRAM system it will be necessary to develop a camera of at least 1200 mm focal length and at least 300 mm aperture and having a field of view of nominally 10 x 10 degrees. The foremost consideration in the design of the camera should be its intended application in extensive photogrammetric flare triangulation. In order to insure that it be possible to achieve an effective directional accuracy per plate of 1 part in 10 to the sixth power through the averaging of multiple flashes, the basic criterion for the evaluation of metric performance is necessarily that the bias introduced by the system, and in particular the camera, should not exceed the equivalent of one micron on the plate. This capability can be tested under a variety of conditions by a special series of stellar exposures. The camera and systems design to be sought is the simplest which will provide the required metric and operational performance. (Author)
