Abstract:

Several Kalman filter designs are developed as possible candidates for implementation in a air defense fire control computer. The designs differ primarily in the model of the target motion. The effectiveness of each design is assessed by driving each filter with real aircraft data. A candidate filter is proposed for air defense implementation which offers simplicity, ease of implementations, and relatively high accuracy in the state estimates. Author
