Abstract
An algorithm is described that is capable of determining and analyzing the placement of features within the target's image using the available edge information. This approach allows for the improved placement of the target gate about the target and the ability to select a terminal homing point for endgame or terminal tracking. The algorithm is simple but apparently effective against various targets situated against nominally cluttered backgrounds and is implementable as a real-time digital process with a relatively small amount of hardware. The approach is based on the use of thresholded edge information found within the target track gate.
