I was searching for something completely different the other day and found this:

Report written by my grandfather and a co-worker (http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19690018645_1969018645.pdf)

My grandfather used to work somewhat high up in the Fairchild Camera and Instrument Corporation. He sold camera products to the US Armed Services as well as the Israeli Defense Force and Israeli Air Force.
The next time you see footage from the Apollo missions, where you're looking out of a camera mounted on the astronaut's helmet, or the next time you see HUD footage from an IAF or USAF aircraft, know that you're looking out of cameras that are direct descendants or exact models of my grandfather's products.
