Paper Abstract

This paper describes methods that have been developed for using multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) for an agile beam radar in the presence of range gate pull off (RGPO) electronic countermeasures (ECM). The paper shows how the agile beam radar allocation logic can be extended to include uncertainty in target position due to data association uncertainty. It also shows how the MHT track score can be modified to reflect target offset from the commanded radar antenna position and how measured SNR is included in the track score. Results from the second Benchmark tracking study are presented. These results show MHT-based allocation to ge highly efficient. The results also show that the system satisfies stringent track maintenance requirements in the presence of RGPO and coincident target maneuvers.
