Following sections detail the design and construction of an imaging tracker built inhouse. The program was very successful and nearly all of the objectives in the original scope of work were achieved. The programs major accomplishments are listed as follows 1 Designed, built, and tested the first Army imaging tracker capable of correlation and adaptive gate optical contrast tracking, 2 the feasibility of trackers using high speed microprocessors and CCD TV technology was demonstrated, 3 several correlation and template matching techniques were studied and implemented in real time microprocessors. Though the tracker was built primarily as a research tool, the hardware concept has the potential for achieving a very small packaging size. Author
