VMEbus Automatic Video Tracker

The Model 7015 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 Model 7015 interfaces with standard analog video sources providing quick integration with a wide variety of sensor systems. The high quality analog video digitizer provides full 12-bit (4096) gray level capability to achieve optimal performance in low contrast environments. The tracker design incorporates a multiple DSP implementation allowing concurrent operation of algorithms in realtime.

The Model 7015'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 7016 tracker provides the same performance with a dual target capability.
