High-Precision Positioning

Aircraft tracking  
High-precision aircraft tracking by the fully automatic optical system QDaedalus

High-precision positioning is used at different scales. We work on the navigational aspect in the frame of precise automated tracking and positioning of any vessels. Special emphasis is put on aircraft tracking in the context of GBAS approaches.

At smaller scale the so-called micro-triangulation has been further developed with the aim to help, i.e., the alignment of magnets on the future accelerator at CERN. The method has been adjusted to embed also kinematic measurements of deformations vibrating structures at high frequency.
