Mobile Multi-Sensor Tracking System (MMTS)


Mobile Multi-Sensor Tracking System (MMTS)

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.

These systems are typically used in tracking missiles and projectiles for recording TSPI data for engineering analysis of flight trajectories and documentary visual presentation of the mission. MMTS also includes an integrated motion analysis capability for 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) post mission image processing.

With the addition of an integrated continuous wave Doppler radar, MMTS provides a single station solution for the capture of 3D data of the flight path of a projectile in real time

MMTS Greatest Hits
Filmed at Redstone Arsenal, this video illustrates the high dynamic performance of the Photo-Sonics Mobile Multi-Spectral Tracking system. The tests clearly show that the MMTS can acquire 6DOF data of a high-velocity projectile from moment of launch until impact. The video concludes with a screen-shot of the post processing in progress..
