Abstract:

This report is concerned with the refinement and performance evaluation of a passive hybrid tracking algorithm. It is composed of a simplified batch filter and a numerically-stable extended Kalman filter, linked together by a set of statistically meaningful switching rules. Comparisons in performance between the hybrid, Tracors MLP algorithm, and a sequential-sequential algorithm where the batch initializer is replaced with an iterated extended Kalman Filter are made using simulated data.
