Abstract : The MITRE Corporation has developed, calibrated, and tested a breadboard single-camera TV theodolite system. Test results indicate the system is highly accurate and suitable for use in System Accuracy Tests of the AN/TPN-19 Precision Approach Radar (PAR). This report describes the design of a full two-camera TV system including the camera and optics arrangement, azimuth-elevation pedestal mount, optics and pedestal shelter, 35 mm camera and film, all controls and interconnecting wiring, and setup and calibration procedures. Typical plan and elevation views of the deployment geometry are also given. (Author)
