Abstract : Mathematical analysis and digital computer simulation performed in support of the Visual Target Acquisition System are described. Basic helmet-tracking geometries, mathematical methods for solution, and sensitivity of computed results to angle detector errors are discussed. The geometry, computing algorithms, and detector orientation scheme adopted are presented. Simulation results indicate high dependence of accuracy. (Modified author abstract)
