Model 7005-CL / Model 7006-CL

VMEbus Automatic Video Tracker

The Model 7005-CL VMEbus Automatic Video Tracker (AVT) represents the latest tracker technology in our continued commitment to product innovation and improvement. The tracker provides the user a system easily adapted to a wide range of targets and tracking environments. The single board tracker incorporates the latest in digital signal processing (DSP) and field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology providing a flexible architecture for customization. The tracker interfaces with both analog and digital video sources, providing ease in interfacing with a wide variety of sensor systems. The analog video interface provides full 12-bit, 4096 gray level capability, supporting camera resolutions up to 1024 x 1024. The Camera Link digital video interface can support resolutions up to 2048 x 2048 with 16-bit depth and frame rates up to 4000 Hz. The tracker design incorporates a multiple DSP implementation allowing concurrent operation of algorithms in realtime.

The Model 7005's standard features and options permit easy adaptation to even the most complex and demanding test range, tactical, surveillance and industrial applications. The system is structured with an open architecture allowing easy incorporation of specialized features and algorithms.

The Model 7006-CL tracker provides the same performance with a dual target capability.
