Paper Abstract

We present a summary of the top level design of and recent imagery and analysis made with components of the TTC fast infrared sniper tracker (FIRST) system. The FIRST instrument will utilize a 7 cm aperture optical system, a 3 - 5 micron imaging camera, and a pulsed, eye-safe laser radar in order to detect, track, and range upon high angular velocity targets, especially bullets. The optical system is based on an ultra low inertia, high acceleration gimbal which enables large area step and star bullet detection at high coverage rates. Three dimensional track files generated by the FIRST system will be used to accurately back-project to the bullet's origin.
