Paper Abstract

Photographic techniques have achieved important results in the study of phenomena associated with this work and developed at Avco-Everett Research Laboratory will be described: (1) a method of deter-mining a missile's re-entry trajectory from a single airborn ballistic camera record, and (2) a spot densi-tometric technique for converting cine photographic records of re-entry bodies to radiant intensity. Samples of data will be shown and the reduction apparatus described.
