Abstract : This master plan is to be used as a basis for testing and evaluating to determine whether an electro-optical (E-O) tracking system containing a video tracker, television (TV) (daylight or low light level TV), a laser rangefinder, and a thermal imaging sensor is currently available and suitable for use in a variety of naval applications, including ship defense. The objective is to determine the degree to which an existing, nondevelopmental item E-O system can be used to support missions of U.S. Navy ships. Test events include air target, surface target, floating target, periscope detection, swimmer detection, man overboard, and additional events of general applicability.
