Abstract : This contract completes the data reduction started by RADC for the Combat Thunder study. Aerial calibration and frame resections were performed to provide empirical data on the error source budgets associated with the KS-87 code matrix block targeting system. In addition, two photo intersection targeting schemes were tried, using relative and absolute orientation. (Author)
