The Sylvania Precision Aircraft Tracking System (PATS) is a precision laser radar system designed for tracking and position determination of cooperative targets which can be mounted with a retroreflector. The reflector provides a very strong laser pulse return which can be detected above the ambient illumination. During operation, the system accurately measures azimuth, elevation, and range of the target at sample rates up to 100 measurement sets per second. These data are available for recording on magnetic tape or realtime computer processing.
