Specialised Imaging Ltd - Trajectory tracking system


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Specialised Imaging Ltd
: 09 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Specialised Imaging Ltd. has reported enthusiastic feedback from customers using its Trajectory Tracker video tracking system to precisely correlate high-speed video data with 3D visualisation and measurement information.
Claude Berner, a Defense Scientist at the French-German Research Institute (ISL) Ballistics Range (www.isl.eu) commented ' The SI Trajectory Tracker has proven itself to be a very useful tool and is now systematically deployed for all outdoor tests at our open range test site, especially for the observation of the sabot separation, the behavior of the model in flight as well as its impact at the target'. 'We have found using the Trajectory Tracker that preliminary quantitative information like spin rate and angles of attack can also be deduced from the videos and compared with the onboard recorded data.

He added 'The recent development of the new in-flight correction mode has tremendously improved the possibilities of tracking models with unpredictable flight characteristics such as for example Earth re-entry space vehicles that exhibit unusual velocity profiles over the flown distance'. 'Models are now well centered on the camera and no repeat of the shots is necessary anymore'.
