Abstract:

THE BASIS OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INEXPENSIVE CAMERA (TRACKER) AND SUPPORT ALGORITHMS THAT CAN BE USED TO TRACK A TARGET TRAJECTORY IN A CONTINUOUS PATH (CP) MOTION. THE BASIS OF THE TRACKER WILL BE A SIMPLE CAMERA BUILT FROM COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE RECTANGULAR (AREA) ARRAYS OF CHARGE COUPLED DIODES (CCD'S). BECAUSE THE TARGET PRECISION REQUIRED MAY BE LESS THAN CERTAIN DEFENSE SYSTEMS, THE TARGET CAN BE IMAGED OPTICALLY ON LESS THAN THE ENTIRE ARRAY. THIS WOULD ENABLE CERTAIN LIMITED MOTION ON THE ARRAY WITHOUT CORRESPONDING MECHANICAL MOTION THUS REDUCING THE MECHANICAL DELIVERY SYSTEM PRECISION AND JITTER REQUIREMENTS ON THE TRACKING DEVICE. THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CCD ARRAYS MAKE POSSIBLE A SENSING ELEMENT THEY MAY BE LOGICLLY CONTROLLED TO PRODUCE THE PROPOSED SYSTEM.
