Abstract:

The US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory Guidance Technologies Branch has implemented a one-of-a-kind outdoor motion-capture system for multi-agent unmanned aerial system testing. This system consists of 96 cameras housed within 16 tracking pods positioned around the perimeter of the desired capture volume. The cameras track actively illuminated LED marker strobes attached to test articles moving throughout the volume. Recent evaluation of this system demonstrated accurate marker tracking within a 460- x 110- x 70-m volume at a measurement rate of 100 Hz.
