Abstract:

This report describes a study of the effectiveness of various aircraft tracking algorithms. The aircraft is observed by a search radar as it approaches its target. On each revolution the radar measures the range, azimuth, and elevation of the aircraft and estimates the measurement error. This information is input to the tracking algorithm, where it is used to compute a track i.e., polynomial expressions for the X, Y, and Z coordinates of aircraft position as a function of time. When the aircraft is sufficiently close the track will be handed over to a fire-control radar.
