Paper Abstract

The success of optical cine theodolites in instrumenting the wide range of test requirements has led to the design of the K-400, a sixteen inch aperture, 2" accuracy, digitized instrument. It is designed to operate in a variety of modes with television, laser and infrared. The integral design results in higher sensitivity, long range video outputs, precise ranging and tracking with lasers and automatic tracking and radiometry in the infrared. Design characteristics and performance have been described.
