Abstract : The report describes the progress made during the first phase of the radar stereo equipment program. During this phase an analytical approach to stereo plotting was selected and a preliminary design of the equipment was developed. The selected approach involves a stereo comparator for making measurements on the imagery, a general purpose computer to transform image coordinates to map coordinates, and a digital plotter to plot the map contours. Also, a set of equations describing the stereo model was derived and an analysis performed. (Author)
