Tracking Mount

Many military test ranges worldwide deal with the measuring of position and attitude of moving objects using dedicated tracking mounts which can follow objects at large distances. The main feature to be measured for these studies is the 3D position of the object at different times. Using the 3D position data all kinds of analysis can be performed, e.g. calculating the distance between a missile and a target. Several tracking mounts can be used, positioned at different locations. Recording the direction to the object  from different angles results in high accuracy 3D positions. An important tool to obtain this accuracy is TrackEye. The program tracks  objects  in  images  automatically,  handles  the  positions  of  the  tracking  mounts, integrate  different  calibrations  and  corresponding corrections, transforms coordinate systems and calculates the position for all objects.
