Abstract
This tutorial paper discusses the performance requirements and design parameters for Electro-Optical Tracking Systems. Descriptions of tracking systems for range instrumentation are discussed. The relationships between the performance requirements, target characteristics and the system optical sensors, tracking algorithms, pedestal dynamics, servo control loops, and ancillary equipment are examined. The design considerations related to the operator interfaces are also discussed.
