Abstract : This laser tracker study is a sampled-data system simulation of a selected Army L-19 type of threat, prediction function, and NIKE-AJAX servo mount in the form of digital programs that can be processed separately or simultaneously to give in a real-time sense the response of the system to the threat. The study leads toward system response to an adaptive laser firing rate and to an adaptive laser beam. System accuracies for several laser repetition rates are illustrated for acquisition and the flyby trajectory. (Author)
