Abstract : There is disclosed an intermittent data tracker that is capable of providing smooth target tracking data from intermittent target range data. The heart of the intermittent tracker is an instantaneous position memory (IPM) which can instaneously memorize the range of a target video signal, and play it back immediately, or at any later time, with no loss in accuracy. The IPM is updated in accordance with computed target velocity, and corrected as necessary by comparison of the predicted range with the measured target range derived from the tracking radar video (Author)
