Paper Abstract

The synthetic estimation filter (SEF) crafts an affine variation into its response to a changing parameter (e.g. scale or rotation). Sets of such filters are used in an estimation correlator to reduce the number of filters required for a given tracking accuracy. By over-specifying the system (one more SEF than parameters to be tracked), the ratio of correlation responses between filters forms a robust estimator into the spanned domain of the parameters. Previous results have dealt with a laboratory correlator which could track a single parameter. This paper explores the SEF and estimator's extension to more dimensions. A two dimensional example is given in which we show a reduction of ifiters from 25 to 3, minimally to span a 4 degree square portion of pose space.
