The Beacon Tracking System is designed to determine the position of a beacon transmitter carried aboard a surface or air target using the Time-Difference-of-Arrival TDOA concept. Target position is computed based on a weighted least-squares solution of the TDOA data. A computer simulation of the system is used to investigate the systems sensitivity to several parameters. Sensitive parameters are shown to be 1 receiver geometry relative to the target 2 receiver position survey accuracy 3 and loss of signal by one or more receivers during a track. Author
