Abstract:

An apparatus and method are disclosed that provide target motion analysis with the ability for having long-term tracking. The apparatus and method provide a leg builder program that monitors successive positional updates from a target and converts the updates into a leg format. The leg format consists primarily of start time, latitudelongitude, time on leg, and end latitudelongitude. The leg format is continuously updated so long as the course of the target is steady. The leg format further embodies routines that provide for a spherical earth model and also for handling unstable course and speed conditions from a target.
