Paper Abstract

Radar designers have long complained about installing heavy photographic acquisition instrumentation on their equipment. In order to provide both long and short focal length data and at the same time keep the weight to a minimum the author proposes that a 16mm camera with dual lenses be designed and tested. This paper deals with the reasons for constructing such a camera and with some of the ideas to be incorporated in its design. The dual lens camera is still in the conceptual stage and comments and criticisms are invited by the author.
