Paper Abstract

This paper discuses a simulation approach that has streamlined the real-time software development process for a closed loop image-based tracking system. The MATLAB/SIMULINK simulation consists of elements constructed from common source modules shared with the deliverable system. The simulation has provided a tool to support algorithm development for the fundamental system components, including a system controller, a servo controller, and an image processor. In addition, the simulation has provided a testbed for verification of system performance. The context for this application is the low rate initial production phase of a tactical airborne avionics system that includes an image-based tracking system.
