Paper Abstract

Gating is the process of reducing misassociations of new detections with a track. Optimization of gate size reduces the chance of miscorrelations, while allowing sufficient size for retention of maneuvering targets. A method is described by which gate size is optimized considering the following tracker and target characteristics: track data rate, measurement error statistics and target acceleration.
