Catalogue number:
2000.0257.19b

Inscriptions:
"WILD HEERBRUGG" and "DISTOMATâ„¢ WILD DI3000"

Dimensions:
7.25 inches long; 4.5 inches wide; 5.675 inches high

Discussion:

Wild Heerbrugg described the Distomat DI3000 as "the fastest infra-red EDM with geodetic accuracy." With a laser diode light source, it had a range of 14 km. It was also relatively light (3.7 lb.), and could used in a yoke or fit onto any Wild optical or electronic theodolite. The National Imagery and Mapping Agency transferred this example to the Smithsonian in 2000.
