Paper Abstract

Since phased array radars have the ability to perform adaptive sampling, proper radar control can improve many aspects associated with the tracking of multiple maneuvering targets. Techniques have been developed to significantly reduce the sampling of a maneuvering target in which the savings in the radar time-energy budget can be reallocated to accomplish other functions. However, controlling the revisit time becomes more difficult when the target is maneuvering in the presence of false alarms. The technique proposed in this paper used the Interacting Multiple Model (IMM) algorithm and Integrated Probabilistic Data Association Filter (IPDAF), combined to form the IMM-IPDAF, to track maneuvering targets and control the radar revisit time in the presence of false alarms.
