Three techniques for metric photography are described. In the first, missile position-time data are obtained from measurement of photographs of the virtual image produced in a precision-ground sphere by a timed stroboscopic point-source lamp. In the second, a rotating circular film disc is covered with sector-shaped exposures using a timed stroboscopic lamp. In the third, the previously described techniques are combined to obtain data simultaneously.
