Paper Abstract

In this paper we present the development of a multisensor-multitarget tracking testbed for large-scale distributed (or network-centric) scenarios. The project, which is in progress at McMaster University and the Royal Military College of Canada, is supported by the Department of National Defence and Raytheon Canada. The objective is to develop a testbed capable of handling multiple, heterogeneous sensors in a hierarchical architecture for maritime surveillance. The testbed consists of a scenario generator that can generate simulated data from multiple sensors including radar, sonar, IR and ESM as well as a tracker framework into which different tracking algorithms can be integrated. In the first stage of the project, the IMM/Assignment tracker, and the Particle Filter (PF) tracker are implemented in a distributed architecture and some preliminary results are obtained. Other trackers like the Multiple Hypothesis Tracker (MHT) are also planned for the future.
