Paper Abstract

Low observable targets pose a unique challenge to both civilian and military surveillance systems. Since `detection densities' received at surveillance centers may be significantly reduced when attempting to track low observable target types, the amount of noise filtering performed at each level of the surveillance system (primary, secondary, and tertiary) must be reduced in an effort to establish and maintain track on the low observable target. This paper discusses specific modifications that may be made to the various primary, secondary, and tertiary processes to allow for enhanced low observable target tracking and their resulting impact on potential tracking performance.
