Paper Abstract

High-fidelity simulation of automatic video trackers is needed to accurately train personnel in the use and operation of target track point update, tracker mode selection, and break-lock conditions. This paper describes a tracker simulator consisting of a microprogrammable two-card set, replicating the algorithms of four operational trackers, that has been developed for this purpose. The tracker simulator operates on images generated by a Computer-Generated Synthesized Imagery (CGSI) system in both the electro-optical and infrared spectrums. Servo stability and track loop delay characteristics are presented.
