New sensor designed for tracking fast moving objects
The Trackerlite, an entry level system designed to enable small test ranges, sport science and university researchers to better understand the flight behaviour of fast moving objects, has been introduced by Specialised Imaging.
The Trackerlite is a compact lightweight system that draws upon the proven pedigree of Specialised Imaging's Trajectory Tracker technology. Complete with integrated high-speed camera - the Trackerlite is a complete ready-to-use system for your fast moving object flight tracking applications.
Designed to be easy to use, the Trackerlite system facilitates recording and diagnosis of the in-flight behaviour of objects travelling from 0-4000m/s with an accuracy of better than 0.2° over its full scan. The resulting slow-motion record of the test object in flight enables the accurate diagnosis of events such as fin deployment and motor burn time as well as calculation of pitch, yaw and spin rate of sporting objects such as golf, tennis and footballs.
The Trackerlite operates using multiple trigger inputs down range along the line of flight of your experiment. The scan velocity and position of the system is maintained correctly using the measured data from up to 3 detector inputs.
