Paper Abstract

Following the acceptance of the linear Gauss Markov paradigm pioneered by Kalman, the engineering practice for the design of target tracking applications had been maturing over the last two decades. In recent years however two emerging facts have called for a renewed attention from the research community: (1) the generalization of multiple sensor architectures, motivated by higher requirements in terms of target description and robustness to electronic warfare, and (2) the availability of affordable imaging sensors, following progress in infrared detectors technology. The purpose of this communication is to report on some recent work addressing the issues raised by these two new aspects of tracking application design. Ideas are illustrated using an air defense scenario.
