DME still plays a fundamental role in aviation by determining distance, or slant range, from the aircraft to the ground station.
However, even though the slant range is longer, the trajectory between you and the animal remains almost the same as it is between you and that point on the Earth's surface.
50 AE sports a muzzle blast sufficient to ruffle your chest hair at a slant range of 20 yards.
Because the cross-track dimension in SAR image is determined by a time measurement associated with the slant range from the sensor to the target, SAR images present inherent geometrical distortions that due to the difference between the slant range and the ground range [11].
8220;The EO payload was an adaptation of HoodTech's field-proven Alticam 09EO1 product that offers National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS) level 9 for airborne imagery from a 4,200 ft slant range, along with a continuous zoom MWIR payload based upon our Alticam 09MWIR2 product.
