Paper Abstract

This paper describes the integration of the Aeroflex Laboratories ARVG series stabilized tracking set, with commercial broadcast cameras and lenses. Originally designed for the United States Air Force AC-130 Spectre Gunship as the AJQ-24 Stabilized Tracking Set, the system as modified by Winged Vision, is currently used by the major television networks in airships, helicopters and ground vehicles. It is also used by commercial firms for survey and inspection and as an aerial test platform for prototype sensor systems.
