Paper Abstract

Estimation of the angular position of point objects is considered for an active tracking system consisting of an agile scanning transmitter and a photon-bucket receiver. Bounds on tracking accuracy for an arbitrary scanning pattern and parameters of an optimal pattern in precision tracking are derived. Examples of linear and nonlinear algorithms for position estimation, with accuracies approaching theoretical bounds, are presented.
