The US-1 Universal Stereoplotter, designed and manufactured by Bendix Research Laboratories, is a precision stereophoto-grammetric instrument that is controlled by a digital computer and uses the analytical reconstruction principle. It is intended for use in aerotriangulation, profiling, cross sectioning, large-and small-scale mapping, and digital data collection. The basic configuration consists of a stereoviewer, plotting table, control computer with associated peripherals, computer programs, control interface, and CBT terminal. Operator control is exercised through the CRT terminal which allows for the entry and display of variaous data items and furnishes an instructional sequence for the operator. Movement through the model is controlled by two handwheels and a footwheel. Operation of the US-1 is under control of a composite computer program, which in turn is composed of a set of program modes. The program is run under the computer's Disk Operating System (DOS), using standard software supplied by the computer manufacturer and making a maximum use of Fortran to simplify the addition to, or modification of, system programs. Thus, the operator may modify the delivered software system for his own special needs. /Author/
