Pellet's position is the key of ICF. The paper introduces an automatic orientation method using two cameras. It based on the 2-D image coordinates resolve the 3-D information. Two steps are considered. Firstly, 3-D orientation is estimated by auto-focus algorithm using pellet edge location to subpixel values in 2-D digital imagery. Secondly, 3-D position is estimated by centroid algorithm and auto-focus algorithm. By this way, it can ignore the forms of pellet edge. In the paper, analytical formulations of the problem are given. It also gives analyse between the centroid algorithm and edge fit algorithm in accuracy. Defocus factors have been compensated in order to obtain accurate estimates of the parameters by the imaged edges. The experiments have shown the accuracy of location pellet can reach 0.2 um, and orientation pellet can reach 3’.
