Motion Tracking System

Description

This facility supports comprehensive studies and hardware experiments in six degree of freedom motion emulation for sensing, guidance, dynamics, and control of space operations in an operationally relevant environment.

As an object tracking system for motion capture of human subjects and other objects, it is expected to provide sub-millimeter resolution at 120 Hz using multiple 16 megapixel digital video cameras. Camera-mounted strobes illuminate small, retro-reflective markers which are processed and identified by the imagers. The system ideal supports tracking flying vehicles and flexible bodies.
