Targeting systems for testing and validation on test ranges

By Paula Danko / January 25, 2022 / Comments Off on Targeting systems for testing and validation on test ranges

By Franck Boynton, VP and CTO We were asked to help validate vehicle coordinates and orientation of ground-based targets in a test environment outdoors. INS was not to be used for vehicle orientation. The idea was to model ground-based targets that could change orientation after moving from one location to the other between missions. The […]
