Formatted abstract
Photogrammetry is a process by which two or more 2-D images are taken of an entity and analysed mathematically to construct a 3-D model. In a current development at the CSIRO, this technique is being applied to advance areas in mining design, planning and safety.

For photogrammetry to be applied effectively, it is critical that the digital cameras used to produce the 2-D images can be accurately aligned. More specifically, the optical axis or line of sight of the cameras must be known and controlled to a high degree of precision. However, due to manufacturing tolerances, small optical variances are evident when comparing individual cameras. The most common problem, is that a cameras true optical axis may be misaligned when compared to its outer casing or base mounting thread. It is this misalignment that the mount, which forms the foundation of this thesis, has been designed to remove.

Therefore, this report documents the processes that were undertaken in the development of a complete design solution. In doing so, it reveals the design processes that were adopted throughout the mounts development, and finally evaluates the solution in terms of its technical requirements.
