Available now from Metromatics , the ADEPT3000 miniature rugged automatic video tracker is easy to integrate into environments where size, weight and power are limited.
Easily integrated using standard or custom format carrier cards, saving time, effort and cost and minimizing program risk, the ADEPT3000 miniature rugged automatic video tracker has been optimised to perform real-time detection and tracking across the full range of aerospace and military electro-optical system applications.
Designed for the detection and surveillance of moving objects, the ADEPT3000 miniature rugged automatic video tracker measures just 34mm x 24mm, which is approximately the size of a microprocessor. Weighing around 6g, these video trackers consume minimal power and can be deployed in highly confined spaces, such as small unmanned aerial vehicles or man-portable devices, or simply integrated directly into a gimbal.
Whether integrated in air-to-ground, ground-to-ground, ground-to-air, or naval electro-optical systems, the new improved algorithms at the heart of the ADEPT3000 miniature rugged automatic video tracker provide effective detection and tracking.
These new video trackers feature an improved ability to distinguish between an object and the background, which is accomplished through the use of innovative technologies such as an advanced signature-based pre-processor for rejecting clutter, as well as an automatic tracking engine.
Despite its small size, the ADEPT3000 rugged automatic video tracker is a highly capable solution with advanced algorithms and significant processing power, allowing it to take more decisions itself.
Aided by a number of features, including improved optics, precision platform dynamics, and higher resolution sensors, the ADEPT3000 automatic video tracker is able to determine and track an object at longer ranges.
This unit natively supports standard definition analog video, and once a target has been acquired, advanced pre-processors discriminate it from heavy clutter, mist, dust and other atmospheric challenges. The resulting signal is passed to sophisticated algorithms for track path analysis, optimised for specific operational scenarios.
The ADEPT3000 automatic video tracker's advanced graphical overlays take advantage of industry standard, off-the-shelf PC development tools to reduce the learning curve and maximize productivity.
Additionally, powerful colour graphics rendering and compositing hardware support flexible and clear outputs.
