Abstract:

A CCD cameraautomatic moving target indicator system developed by Rockwell International under the DARPA-sponsored Teal Amber program, was recently field-tested at the Lincoln LaboratoryESD test site in New Mexico. A variety of experiments indicated that the point-source sensitivities of the mosaiced CCD imagers and the automatic satellite detection capability of the system fell short of original goals by approximately two visual magnitudes.
