Abstract:

An adaptive alpha - beta filter used to track targets by search radars is described. The gains alpha and beta are adjusted so as to minimize the mean square error between the targets predicted and measured positions. Several examples are given. These show that the filter responds rather rapidly to changing environments for a time between samples of 4 s.
