It’s been a short while since we last had a tutorial and update on new features for the AH-64D. Today we get a new one from Matt Wagner showing off a new target tracking function for the co-pilot/gunner position on the Apache. Let’s have a look!
Track multiple targets
This is a pretty cool new feature. Matt Wagner walks us through the functionality of the new image auto-tracker that can be used to select and track up to three targets at once. In the example, Matt targets and then engages a bunch of moving APCs with the image tracker locking onto and following each APC individually.
It reminds me of some of the cameras that I’ve used recently with subject tracking autofocus. In both cases, the system identifies a selected object and then holds onto it for as long as possible. Check out the tutorial to see it in action. I expect that this function will become available soon!
