Abstract
We describe an infrared stereo imaging method for the 3D target tracking of distant moving point sources. In scenes which are typically lacking in significant features, correspondence between the two camera images is simplified by the application of a triple temporal filter to consecutive frames of data. This filter simultaneously accentuates the target and suppresses background clutter. We apply this stereo tracking technique to experimental range measurements in which the target is tracked with sub-pixel precision.
