Optical Tracking Systems

Optical Tracking Systems from Photo-Sonics, Inc.

A missile is fired from a test range and you want the best video footage possible, including the moment of impact. You want that video footage whether the missile is moving away from or across the field of view. You want accurate Time-Space-Position-Information to go along with the video. You need a device with outstanding dynamic performance and the freedom of movement to track in three-dimensional space “Six degrees of freedom” or 6DoF. Look no further.


Photo-Sonics designs and manufactures optical tracking systems and gimbals used in a variety of applications including the test and evaluation of weapons and directed energy applications. From the earliest days on the U.S. Test Ranges, Photo-Sonics has been delivering optical tracking systems known for their high performance, reliability, and versatility. Notably, we are the world leaders in state-of-the-art Time-Space-Position-Information (TSPI) systems used to gather data for engineering analysis and documentation. Photo-Sonics offers complete integration services commissioning, and operator training for these systems.


We offer a complete range of Optical Tracking Systems for large payloads with high dynamic performance to smaller mobile mounts, all with fully integrated instrumentation.


Optical Tracking Systems - Nano Sextant

The Photo-Sonics Nano-Sextant is a portable tracking system weighing only 64kg, whilst maintaining quality Time-Space-position-Information (TSPI).

Optical Tracking Systems - Cine Sextant

The Photo-Sonics Cine-Sextant Tracking system provides a high performance, TSPI data gathering system in a rugged, mobile configuration.

Optical Tracking Systems - Mobile Compact

The Photo-Sonics Compact Tracking Mount (CTM) provides a high performance TSPI, vibration-free data gathering system in a rugged, portable configuration.

Optical Tracking Systems - Mobile Multi-Sensor

Photo-Sonics Inc. has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office (PEO) for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (STRI) to design and manufacture a Mobile Multi-Sensor Tracking System (MMTS) for the U.S. Army Redstone Technical Test Center (RTTC) at Redstone Arsenal. This system will automatically track and capture Time-Space-position-Information (TSPI) of the world’s fastest hypervelocity missiles and projectiles.
