Hardback $296.00 Qty:
Here's a thorough overview of the state-of-the-art in design and implementation of advanced tracking for single and multiple sensor systems. This practical resource provides modern system designers and analysts with in-depth evaluations of sensor management, kinematic and attribute data processing, data association, situation assessment, and modern tracking and data fusion methods as applied in both military and non-military arenas. Whether you desire background information to get you up-to-speed or if you want to access only the most recently developed advanced methods, the book's modular chapter structure makes its easy for you to get the specific information you 're looking for quickly. You get full coverage of tracking topics such as: Passive ranging and interactive multiple model (IMM) filtering; Multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) data association; Bayesian and Dempster-Shafer attribute fusion; Multiple sensor tracking methods for distributed systems such as for space based surveillance systems; Use of tracking data for situation assessment and sensor management; Track fusion and track-before-detect (TBD) methods; Efficient allocation of agile beam radar resources. You also learn how to interpret and optimize tracker data, and solve the problems associated with algorithm choice and design. This authoritative resource includes detailed examples dealing with real world issues, over 380 illustrations, and more than 800 equations.
