dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the optimum design for a hand held stereo camera considering the types of data to be taken, the environmental conditions, the limited dexterity of the space suited astronaut and the allowable space and weight. The scope of the study was limited by time and funding to a preliminary investigation of the best compromise between a wide array of conflicting capability requirements, a harsh environment, a somewhat limited photographer and a severe limitation on space and weight.
