Quantifying 3D Positional Uncertainty of Rediological Material from Nuclear Detonation Video
Multi-view geometry theory is applied to atmospheric nuclear tests filmed in the 1950s and 1960s, to estimate the three-dimensional locations of fixed structures and radiological material during the detonation. Results show that using bundle adjustment, points can be estimated with an average uncertainty of 0.68 meters with 0.36, 0.28, and 0.37 meters of uncertainty in x-, y-, and z-directions respectively.
