Abstract:

This report presents the results of phase I of an investigation of a new concept for tracking multiple targets. This concept is based on modeling the observed data as a multichannel ARMA process. The parameters of the model provide a compact representation of target parameters such as spectrum and TDOAbearing. These parameters can, therefore, be used as inputs to a tracking algorithm. In phase I the basic algorithm for single target tracking was developed and tested. Results based on simulations of synthetic data are very promising. Preliminary theoretical analysis of the multichannel case has also been performed. Author
