Abstract : The patent describes a television tracker system having a camera which alternately scans both horizontally and vertically. Included is a processor having separate horizontal and vertical mode differentiators, in common, first pulse storage (target's first edge detector) and last pulse storage (target's last edge detector). The common components of the processor are shared, but used alternately, by the horizontal and vertical mode circuits. The above-mentioned first pulse and last pulse locate the target within the tracker window and provide the horizontal and vertical error signal information for centering said target.
