Paper Abstract

This paper presents a technique of using data association target tracking in a motion sequence via an adaptive joint transform correlator. The massive data in the field of view can be reduced to a few correlation peaks. The average velocity of a target during the tracking cycle is then determined from the location of the correlation peak. We have used a data association algorithm for the analysis of these correlation signals, with which multiple targets can be tracked. A phase-mostly LCTV is used in the hybrid joint transform correlation system, and simultaneous tracking of three targets is demonstrated.
