The Airborne Astrographic Camera System The Airborne Astrographic Camera System (AACS) represents a unique approach to the problem of observing reentry trajectories and associated parameters from airborne observing stations. The basic principles employed by the system are the same as those with which one approaches the problem of trajectory computation using ground-based ballistic cameras. The observation of re-entry trajectories using groUnd-based cameras has become a rather well-defined and precise science, and has concurrently become a rather specialized art. Thus, it is not difficult to grasp the nature of the problems confronting investigators in the field of airborne trajectory observation who found the details of the ground-based approach rather difficult to apply to the airborne problem.
