GE Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the ADEPT3000 small automatic miniature video tracker for embedded computing applications, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and man-portable devices where size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) are primary design concerns.
The ADEPT3000 provides high-quality, single-target tracking with standard-definition analog video signals. The device measures 24 by 35 millimeters and weighs six grams—about the size of a microprocessor—and operates as a stand-alone unit on printed circuit boards. The miniature video tracker uses on-board serial links to communicate with many different kinds of platforms, and comes with intuitive menu-driven software, GE officials say. It is rugged enough for aerospace, defense, and other harsh-environment applications. Its environmental specifications are subject to mounting. GE has designed the ADEPT3000 as a versatile image-processing subsystem with common video and communications links.
