Polhemus Military History
Polhemus has been working with prime contractors and military entities since 1970. Polhemus products have been used in U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Army fixed and rotary wing aircraft including, to name just a few, F-4, F-14, F-15, F-16, F-18, F-101, UH-60, MH-60, AH-1, AV-8B, MH-53, Comanche & A-10.
Why Magnetic Tracking?
Magnetic tracking clearly has undisputed advantages over other tracking models. Polhemus uses AC magnetic tracking over pulsed DC magnetic tracking. Polhemus originated the DC concept but elected not to pursue it because of overall performance penalties.
Many organizations supporting military programs use Polhemus products for a variety of industrial design, training and simulation, and research applications.
