Pure arithmetic analysis and solution to photogrammetric reconstruction principles, as envisioned by early pioneers and documented by O. von Gruber, have been technically feasible for two decades. The superiority of analytic techniques as tools which could bypass the limitations of graphic or analog solutions to reach a new order of accuracy and versalitity have never been seriously questioned. Early instruments utilizing these principles were restricted by cost/benefit ratios to a narrow segment of the potential market. The timing had to await the progres of developments in other technical disciplines. A steady progression of advances in digital computer technology, processing languages, micro circuits, optics, encoding, and numerical control principles provide the possibility that in the RSS-300-II Digital Stereo Compiler the price/performance ratio epoch has been reached. /Author/
