Description


Flown Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) mounting bracket used aboard the Apollo 9 spacecraft during its mission from March 3-13, 1969. The bracket measures approximately 2.25 x 4.75 x 2.5 and is stamped with part numbers: “LDW34053051-3” and “LDW340W1156611.” The bracket features a rounded clamp, a swivel base stamped “PI 29,” and a pair of adjustment knobs. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Apollo 9 Commander Jim McDivitt, in full: "I certify that this DAC camera utility bracket was flown onboard Apollo 9 and is from my personal collection." The 16mm Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) was manufactured by J. A. Maurer Company specifically for the Apollo program. Used in both the command and lunar modules, the DAC was tested on Apollo 8, the first circumlunar mission, and again on Apollo 9, the first test of the lunar module. DACs were an essential piece of equipment that aided in the recording of EVAs, landing and lunar approach, and technical procedures such as the undocking and redocking of the lunar module.
