I have acquired historic aerial imagery for the surrounding towns, circa 1954, and the images have no georeference.

I am looking for software to help me batch-rectify the 200+ images. I have current orthophotos, DEMs, and other vector information for the area.

Firstly it is going to be hard to georeference unknown locations you need at least 3 points of known locations to reference to. Older Aerials Photographs are likely to require some pre-processing to recifiy distortion in the images (len correction etc). see 3dkap.aircatcher.com/index.php?id=147 –  Mapperz Sep 9 '13 at 19:21
