There is an excellent article in the IEEE SPECTRUM magazine archives that describes in a general way the electronics and computations used to present the America's Cup 2013 televised broadcast with what is called an augmented reality. Perhaps most interesting is the position sensors used on the boats; a specialized GPS receiver gave a 2-centimeter accuracy. See

for more details. The people that accomplished this amazing integration of technology and television are the same two guys who provide the yellow first down line on football broadcasts.
