Paper Abstract

Recently, the author solved a general problem of fusing asynchronous tracks while taking into account communicatrion delays, data latency, and out of sequence tracks. The objective of this paper is to perform preliminary performance analysis of the asynchronous track fusion algorithm. In this study, two snesors providing asynchronous measurements are considered, where the update track fusion rate is fixed. Communication delay between at least of the senors' platform and the fusion center may exit. Monte Carlo simulations are performed using simulated traget tracks. The performance of the individual sensors as well as that of the fused track is provided. The preliminary results show the benefit of track fusion under more realistic assumptions than what is currently the practice.
