With the fast development of anti-ballistic missiles, capable of accelerations beyond 150 G's, it has become a problem for many missile ranges to utilize existing photo-optical tracking devices at reasonably short slant ranges. In order to track such superfast missiles, angular accelerations beyond 10 radians per second squared are required at the tracker's axes. This is about ten times better than what present-day theodolites and tracking mounts can achieve.
