Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the problem of tracking highly dynamic targets in real-time. The advantages and disadvantages of various control and interpolation techniques are discussed. Algorithms appropriate for real- time tracking are compared with algorithms that are common in applications with a priori knowledge of the trajectory. A unique command interpolation technique combined with a state feedback control structure, implemented on a commercial DSP controller, demonstrates a significant performance improvement.
