At that time, the Contraves system became operational in both mobile and fixed location configurations. This cinetheodolite was located at on eof the many optical instrumentation sites at White Sands Missile Range, and was used to record valuable data during performance testing of missiles, aircraft, and other experimental weapon systems.
