Paper Abstract

The Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. has been conducting extensive research in the area of infrared tracking systems. Automatic detection of sea surface targets has been experimentally investigated by using a programmable passive infrared seeker system. The Victor seeker system uses two independent programmable infrared tracking systems which are mounted on naval P-3 aircraft and flown at sea surface targets. This system contains an infrared scanning detector array assembly, an infrared camera imaging system and a VME multicomputer control/image processor. The seeker system permits varying key parameters in software and evaluating the performance in real world target scenarios.
