Paper Abstract

This paper considers the problem of tracking dim unresolved ground targets and helicopters in heavy clutter with a ground based sensor. To detect dim targets the threshold must be set low which result in a large number of false alarms. The tracker typically uses the target dynamics to prevent the false tracks. The interesting aspect of this problem is that the targets may be or may become stationary. The tracks of stationary targets are difficult to discriminate from tracks formed by persistent false alarms.
