Abstract : Report covers the testing and evaluation of the prototype Side-Looking Radar Presentation Viewing and Measuring Instrument to determine its capability for making accurate measurements on radar film transparencies. Data on the accuracy of the instrument are presented. Report concludes: (a) The prototype instrument, in general, meets the requirements as specified. In the event of future development, however, many design improvements will be necessary. (b) Instrument accuracies for both the right and left side measuring systems are comparable to the required accuracy. (c) The measuring reticles are inadequate for measuring conjugate points on film transparencies. This is partially due to the frosted glass stage plates. (d) Either positive or negative film transparencies may be used in the instrument. (Author)
