Optical EngineeringMarriage of FM reticles to focal plane arrays
|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
A technique for segmenting focal planes to complement spinning frequency modulation (FM) reticles in tracking applications is presented. The technique involves the relaxation oftwo parameter constraints in the FM reticle equation. The advantages are a reduction in susceptibility to countermeasures and increased resolution. The disadvantages are increased electronics loading and a reduction in the maximum trackable target size.
