Paper Abstract

Itek has recently develoned a high-acuity, long-focal-length panoramic camera for high-altitude standoff photogranhy. The camera utilizes a 72-in., f/3.65 catadioptric lens of a modified Cassegrain configuration. Features incorporated into the camera include internal two-axis stabilization, an air canstan for film control, and stereo capability. The camera has successfully completed qualification and acceptance testing and has demonstrated dynamic resolution in excess of 125 cycles/mm with a target contrast of 1.6:1. This paper describes the camera operating parameters and defines the salient features.
