Stochastic Control of a Passive Search for Ocean Vehicles,
MASSACHUSETTS INST OF TECH CAMBRIDGE LAB FOR INFORMATION AND DECISION SYSTEMS
The problem of selecting a maneuver policy for single-platform bearings only search and localization in the ocean is viewed as a stochastic optimal control problem. A solution is developed based on a realistic environment model and extended Kalman filter tracker. Simulation results highlight the dominance of engagement geometry e.g. direct-path vs. convergence zone over maneuver policy with respect to total performance. Author
