The following title and abstract are indicative of the work done and
informative as to the engineering techniques and the limits of precision.
Title: “A Precise Optical Instrumentation Radar.”
Abstract: An instrumentation tracker is described that provides real
time positional data on high-speed cooperative targets with a precision
<1 mat ranges between 300 m and 10km. Unambiguous range is deter.
mined by a precise digital frequency-modulation—continuous-wave (FM
CW) ranging technique using a target-mounted beacon and a narrow
laser ranging beam. This system permits measurement of target position
to values much less than target dimension. Azimuth and elevation angles
are read out by precision shaft angle encoders and recorded in binary
form, along with range and time, on magnetic tape or directly to a real
time computer. CONCLUSION
An abstract by its content, form, and style should serve to preview
the rest of the published article. The abstract is often the only part of a
research article that will ever be examined by colleagues or researchers.
That abstract will be used to decide if its parent article will be ignored
or if it merits further attention. Therefore, authors do themselves a
disservice when the abstract fails to answer the question, “What is this
article really about?”...
