Abstract
Sandia brought its first laser tracking system on-line in 1968 to replace the fixed camera technique for producing trajectory data on test vehicles. Today, test operations are supported by two mobile self-contained tracking systems. These standalone systems provide accurate time-space- position information and high speed photometric coverage.
