Cinetheodolites in Action

Now's your chance to help the engineers here at WSMR to track a missile flight and analyze the data produced by cinetheodolites (keeping things simple, of course...).

To the right, follow the instructions to use cinetheodolites to track a missile's flight, like the gentlemen below. Then take the data they produce to recreate the missile's path for more detailed investigation. In the days before satellite navigation, complex computers, or GPS, this was the ingenious solution to tracking flights.

So what are you waiting for?!?
Give it a try!

Two servicemen operate an Askania Kth-53 cinetheodolite, circa 1955.
