Polhemus SCOµT Head Tracker
SCOµT is the only self-contained 6 Degree-Of-Freedom (6DOF) head-tracker in the world, and incorporates such features as:
• Embedded Boresight Retainment
• Simplified or Eliminated Calibration
• Advanced Breakaway/Quick Disconnect Management

SCOµT is a revolutionary paradigm breakthrough in advanced electromagnetic technology. The system eliminates the need for a system electronics unit. The 6DOF helmet mounted sensor communicates its position and orientation directly to the host PC, image generator, or the fire control computer (FCC). This removes the need to plan for tracker electronics space within an airframe or high fidelity simulator and eliminates the need for sensitive and complicated inter-component wiring.

Two Source Options: Canopy Source and Standard Source
By using the new Polhemus Canopy Source, calibration is either entirely eliminated or greatly simplified for many simulators or other head tracking applications. Polhemus advancements in active AC magnetic signal generation have produced a miniaturized source (10 grams) which has opened new possibilities for canopy installations.

The Canopy Source also has an extremely small footprint and lightweight characteristics to aid in straightforward cockpit integration. For other installations where the canopy is not a consideration, a slightly larger, more traditional Standard Source is available.

Ultra Lightweight Head Sensor
The entire SCOUT head sensor, cabling and electronics, weighs only 35 grams. The sensor itself weighs 10 grams and is consistent with the standard size and footprint of all other standard Polhemus sensors (noted to be small, light weight and easily integrated). Because sensor and computational electronics are self-contained, sensitive wiring to a breakaway connection for ejection safety is greatly simplified. Only six high level signal wires are required through the breakaway connector.

If environmental conditions require calibration, Polhemus has developed a high-speed calibration capability that has been demonstrated to produce a highly accurate tracking area within a cockpit in less than one hour. Common calibration maps across simulators and aircraft platforms have been demonstrated – eliminating the need to individually calibrate every simulator or aircraft of similar class and configuration.
