A LIGHT SOURCE FOR SENSITOMETRY OF AERIAL FILMS

TO ESTABLISH A LIGHT SOURCE SUITABLE FOR THE SENSITOMETRY OF FILM FOR AERIAL SURVEY PHOTOGRAPHY, PUBLISHED AND UNPUBLISHED RADIOMETRIC DATA ON DAYLIGHT WERE COLLECTED AND APPROPRIATELY COMBINED. ALLOWANCE WAS MADE FOR THE TRANSMISSION OF TYPICAL LENSES. THE EFFECT OF THE ATMOSPHERE BETWEEN THE SCENE AND THE CAMERA WAS EXAMINED. A TYPICAL SPECTRAL ENERGY DISTRIBUTION WAS ESTABLISHED FROM 350 TO 920 NANOMETERS. PRACTICAL LABORATORY SOURCES APPROXIMATING THIS DISTRIBUTION WERE FOUND USING A 2854K TUNGSTEN LAMP WITH THREE GLASS FILTERS, CORNING 5900, SCHOTT FG10, AND SCHOTT KG04, IN APPROPRIATE THICKNESS. /AUTHOR/
