Abstract
Several optical configurations were investigated for acquisition, tracking, and pointing (ATP) systems. These configurations were to be employed for ATPing targets that were to be interrogated by neutral particle beams (NPBs). NPBs delineate real targets from replica or false targets. This particular optical design investigation was for the NPB Concepts and Requirements Definitions Study (CARDS). The proposed NPB CARDS ATP consisted "of a coarse and a precision-passive IR acquisition and tracking sensor coupled to a precision-active UV tracker that referenced boresight, range, and target motion to an NPB-pointing control system."1
