Pagination or Media Count:
A trajectory estimation system for estimating a trajectory of a target in response to a series of data items which generated in response to motion of the target. The trajectory estimation system includes a data segmentation means and a trajectory selection means. The data segmentation means processes the series of data items in accordance with a regressionmultiple-hypothesis methodology to generate a plurality of segments, each having associated data items which have similar features. The trajectory selection means for processing said segments in accordance with a multiple-model hypothesis methodology to generate a corresponding statistically-supportable candidate trajectory motion estimate of target motion thereby to provide indicia of an overall trajectory of the target.
