This 16mm Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) was manufactured by J. A. Maurer Company for the Apollo program, though it never flew on a mission. DACs were used in both the command and lunar modules during the program to document docking and undocking procedures, as well as descent to and ascent from the lunar surface.
NASA transferred this camera to the Museum in 1989.
