For a team of unmanned aerial vehicles UAVs to deceive a radar network by generating a phantom track requires a high degree of cooperation due to 1 dynamic constraints imposed mainly by the UAVs and 2 strong coupling caused by the phantom. We first review three works that have addressed this problem, namely two one-step look-ahead algorithms and an optimal solution with full time horizon original simulations of each are included. Second, since the one-step algorithms do not satisfy the UAV andor phantom constraints in many cases, we design a new algorithm that does, as shown by simulation. Finally, we add a multi-step look-ahead for the UAV constraints and modify the algorithm so that an operator can dynamically add objective waypoints for the phantom.
