Paper Abstract

This paper develops the pulse train probabilistic data association filter (PT-PDAF) for use in pulse train analysis and deinterleaving applications. The approach is based on a state-space formulation of the pulse train evolution model. The PDA approach overcomes real-world problems of false and missing pulses which cause the basic Kalman filter to break down. Simulations are developed to show that the PT-PDAF approach is superior to a nearest neighbor filter. An augmented PDA approach which incorporates available pulse parameter measurements such an angle of arrival into the PDA algorithms is shown to further improve the filter performance.
