    [ALREADY REPORTED]MAV+TPOD doesn't work against moving target

    MAV is constantly slewed to the initial position desginated by TGP, even if uncaged. There's no handoff. If it happens to lock the target and the target moves, it will fight for a while, switching between ground designation and target tracking several times per second, and eventually it will loose the target.

    The only way to stop this is to undesignate and loose TPOD track.

    In the attached track you will see that after locking the first vehicle in the convoy, MAV will constantly jitter and switch targets, until the whole convoy passes through the initial designation point.

    Hi

    This is already reported, the jittery lock will be looked at by the team, however I want to mention you are trying to get a lock to far out, at maximum range it will be more difficult.

    thanks

      Locking distance is not the subject of this report.

      The problem is Mav can't follow a moving target once locked, because it's constantly forced to look at the point designated by TGP. No matter if it locked at 5 or 10 nm. This creates the "jittery" lock effect.
      Same happens when the target is not moving, but the TGP designation is not right on top of the target.

        Just in case they are looking at the wrong issue...
