Radiated images of the propagation path of a charged particle beam simultaneously projected to spaced points on a platform, are recorded by path tracking video cameras. Data on the positional orientation of the path tracking cameras during reception of simultaneously projected images, measured by inertial sensors is utilized to calculate the location and direction of the beam propagation path by iterative triangulation.
