Abstract:

Two separate sensing arrays track the same underwater vehicle. The two versions of track are different, but roughly parallel. One possible explanation is the presence of a timing synchronization error. The report provides a model for describing and correcting such errors, estimation algorithms for quantifying the model parameters, and statistical methodology for testing the validity of the effects. The techniques are applied to real data, and the results are reported. Also some properties of the noise process are recorded. JHD
