Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach to tracking groups of objects within clusters that exhibit swarm type behavior. The algorithm for achieving swarm track enables a real-time local reference frame to be established for members of the group in a fashion that makes hand-over and high-resolution tracking possible. Individual members once tracked in a local reference system are easily described and tagged for exchange with other sensors from disparate vantage points making sensor registration a more tractable problem. We demonstrate this algorithm as a GOTO capability for high-resolution lunar feature tracking to illustrate the fine points and details.
