Abstract:

This paper provides a brief description and performance results for the multistatic sonar trackers developed at NURCNATO Undersea Research Center. Our analysis is based on common data distributed as part of the Multistatic Tracking Working Group MSTWG, as well as sea trial data. We find that the nearest-neighbor tracker provides reasonable performance in benign environments, while the centralized and distributed MHT trackers have complementary strengths in more challenging scenarios.
