Abstract:

During the previous quarter, the multiping processor design was finalized, and parameters selected for the detection and tracking portions of the multiping processing algorithm. Work also progressed and is continuing on obtaining quantitative performance results on the multiping processor through Monte-Carlo techniques. An analysis of average total costs for multiping sonar decisions was made and will be useful in comparing competing decision algorithms. This analysis is presented as is the Kalman filter equations and the adaptation of the Kalman filter to our specific track detection problem. During the next quarter quantitative performance results of the multiping processor will be obtained via Monte-Carlo methods using the digital tapes generated containing noise and signal plus noise with time and frequency spreading of arriving target associated paths.
