- A camera specifically designed for use from an airborne station. There are various types of aerial cameras, and they may be used for photographic work—both for reconnaissance and survey. They also are used for recording gun sights or head-up displays and the point of impact of air-delivered weapons. The latter are known as gun/cine cameras.
