Discrete‐time two‐dimensional tracking filters

ByK. V. Ramachandra

The uncoupled one‐dimensional tracking filters described in Chapter 2 may be extended to two dimensions to develop two‐dimensional trackers for estimating the position, velocity, and also acceleration of an aircraft with the range r and bearing θ measurements obtained by a two‐dimensional track‐while‐scan radar sensor. The techniques and matrix transformations to develop two‐dimensional trackers are presented in this chapter.
