Abstract:

Described herein is a TC tracking system capable of real-time visual object tracking. The total system consists of low-light TV cameras and communications allowing for data to be sent from remote sites to a small centrally located computer. The position of the object that the three cameras are observing is calculated by the computer and transmitted to other sites for the purpose of pointing other equipment. Solutions are available once per second. This report describes the actual use of this system during the SECEDE 2 test series and some problems encountered. It also contains enough detailed information to allow duplication of the system software or to extract certain portions of it that may be useful to other applications.
