The R&D Tracking Telescope is a Research and Development platform that can be used to record event data. The mount can also be outfitted with an NTSC or high speed video camera to document the event, as well as provide real time video feed to the Control Point (CP) for situational awareness. The instruments can be slaved to TTR's tracking radars for target acquisition and ranging information for camera focus.
The platform acts as a testbed for new imagers and auto-tracker/remote operations development. The R&D mount is a universal platform which can accommodate up to two additional customer provided sensors.
Currently only one RD platform is available for fielding.
