Abstract:

One of the outcomes of the 19th meeting of The Technical Cooperation Program TTCP Sub Group K Technical Panel KTP-2 was a set of track metrics 1. The purpose of these metrics was to enable a qualitative comparison of the effectiveness of different radar tracking algorithms in the face of various target situations. The complex and highly variable target situations that radars face have made the development of a quantitative set of metrics that yield absolute scoring virtually impossible. These metrics now provide the radar engineer with a consistent basic upon which to compare the performance of various tracking algorithms. This report will detail the results of applying these metrics to data obtained during a Multi-Role Survivable Radar MRSR tracking test and presented at the 21st meeting of the KTP-2 group.
