Paper Abstract

Optical alignment is used extensively for alignment of weapon systems. Its speed, simplicity and very high accuracy are all eminently suitable for these demanding tasks. The various uses are so many that we will concentrate on the use for missiles, aircraft and gun barrels. I will also briefly show what is now possible with newer instruments with facilities for remote data logging.
