Abstract : The report describes the development of an automated version of an AS-11A analytical stereoplotter. The system utilizes electronic image correlation in conjunction with the AS-11A control computer to automatically produce contour and profile charts. The equipment accommodates frame or panoramic photography, either vertical or convergent. The maximum rates of contouring or profiling are 10 millimeters per second. Maximum terrain slope accommodated is 45 degrees. Capability is provided for automatic orientation of stereo-models and for visual monitoring during automatic operation. (Author)
