Abstract

Owning to the fifth-generation jet fighter development, plenty of research has studied searching, locating, and tracking targets without radars or other active equipment. This technique is called passive location, such as Elector-Optical Targeting System (EOTS). The Elector-Optical Distributed Aperture System (EODAS) in the US and UK, the BAE Systems, Inc., was developed and implemented in the AN/ALR-94 for F-22 Raptors. It uses the Field of View (FOV) principle to get the angle of the horizon and the vertical from motion or static state in three-dimensional spaces. However, this study discussed passive location based on trigonometric relation and digital image processing. As to the weapons delivery system, Continuously Computed Impact Point (CCIP) was taken into consideration. The fashions of weapons delivery are pertinent to determine the plane trajectories. These trajectories project Head-Up Display (HUD) and support pilots simultaneously.
