Paper Abstract

Described is an optoelectronic system that makes it possible to measure the position and velocity of a ship model. It operates over a 200 m by 200 m area with a fundamental error less than 0.1 m and consists of an optoelectronic transmitter aboard the model and two stations ashore which are connected to a computer. The ground stations measure angles between a base and the mobile transmitter. Based on the angle data the position and velocity are calculated by the computer. The simultaneous measurements of two models are also possible.
