Paper Abstract

The problem of tracking N targets, with correlation in both measurement and maneuver noise sources, is solved by transforming to a coordinate frame in which the N targets are decoupled. For identical targets, the decoupling is shown to coincide with a transformation to a set of nested center-of-mass coordinates. An example with a white-noise target acceleration model is worked out in detail in order to demonstrate the significant improvement in both absolute and differential tracking accuracies that is achieved by properly exploiting the correlation between targets.
