Abstract:

This report describes the application of hyrbid state estimation theory to develop a unified theory of airborne surveillance. Hybrid state estimation provides a framework for treating estimation problems in which both continuous, numerical-valued variables and discrete, logical-valued variables occur. This framework allows one to model many different surveillance problems such as multiple maneuvering targets, formation flying, missile launch and interception and to construct the corresponding tracking algorithm. This report examines such models and investigates the resulting optimal and suboptimal tracking algorithms.
