Abstract:

This report presents a derivation of the principal algorithms and an analysis of the performance of the two most important passive location systems for stationary transmitters hyperbolic location systems and direction-finding location systems. The concentration ellipse, the circular error probable, and the geometric dilution of precision are defined and related to the location-system and received-signal characteristics. Doppler and other passive location systems are briefly discussed. Author
