Abstract:

The paper presents an analysis of the phased array radar allocation demands, when tracking highly maneuverable anti-ship missiles ASM using a collocated radarIRST sensor combination. The motion of the ASM is modelled using the quantized acceleration levels. The principal aim of this analysis is to determine an upper bound on the average radar update time. This bound follows from a Cramer-Rao type error bound for the estimation of linear jump Markov dynamic systems 1. Given a dynamic motion model of an ASM, the IRSTradar sensor characteristics and a tolerable level of target state estimation error, we can theoretically predict the maximum average update time required for the phased-array radar. The presented analysis allows us to quantify the IRST benefits in ASM defence, without a need for extensive Monte Carlo simulations.
