Paper Abstract

White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) has developed an Adaptive Prediction Filter (APE) that provides digital servo control for optical instrumentation tracking mounts when operated in a slaved track mode. The APF is a programmable microprocessor based design utilizing both an 8-bit and a 16-bit microprocessor. A wide variety of serial data input formats can be handled and the APE provides Type 11 servo performance, adaptive servo control, and coordinate conversion for input data in a Cartesian coordinate format. The paper covers the design, theory of operation, and test results of the APE when used with an optical tracking mount.
