Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to investigate and evaluate adaptive tracking filters for shipboard gun fire control systems that must defend against evasive targets. Several design concepts are compared using both tracking error and predicted position error as performance measures. The effects of target evasion, sensor measurement noise level, modeling uncertainties, and length of the measurement interval are investigated, and the trade-offs between performance and algorithm complexity are discussed.
