Paper Abstract

A sensor-to-track assignment algorithm is developed for a multisensor tracking system to track multiple maneuvering targets. These sensors are spatially distributed and track multiple targets at the same time. To maintain track continuity of approaching targets is the keynote of this algorithm. When local sensors disagree on which central track to update with their local tracks, this algorithm provides an effectiveness function to resolve the conflict. When measurements from all sensors are used to update central tracks, this algorithm can select or request measurements from the more effective sensors to track potential maneuvering targets.
