A data processor system for extracting and quantizing aimpoint data from a stored video display of a target tracking operation comprising an operator-controlled joystick by which an operator can superimpose, on a frame-by-frame basis, distinctive display symbols coincident with the aimpoint of the target tracking system and a selected target reference point. The processor includes a programmable calculator which converts the angular separation of the tracking and target reference points into corresponding linear x, y data coordinates and then automatically plots the aimpoint from successive display frames on a target silhouette. The programmable calculator also is able to perform a coordinate rotation in order to compensate for angular displacement between the orientation of the tracking system and the target, e.g. to compensate for roll of the aircraft on which a radar tracker is mounted.
