Real time Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) image registration is achieved by stimulating one eye with a live video image from a flying UAV while stimulating the other eye with calculated images. The calculated image is initialized by telemetry signals from the UAV and corrected using the Perspective View Nascent Technology (PVNT) software package model-image feedback algorithm. Live and registered calculated images are superimposed allowing command functions including target geo-location, UAV sensor slewing, tracking, and way point flight control. When the same equipment is used with the naked eye the forward observer function can be implemented to produce accurate target coordinates. The paper will then discuss UAV mission control and forward observer target tracking experiments conducted at Camp Roberts, California.
