Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO IMPROVE AN EXISTING MONTE CARLO TRACKER THAT FUSES POSITIVE NONACOUSTIC DATA AND POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ACOUSTIC DATA, YIELDING PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS FOR THE TARGET LOCATION AND VELOCITY. FIVE IMPROVEMENTS ARE PROPOSED: 1. INCORPORATE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE INFORMATION FROM TOWED ARAYS, 2. INCORPORATE DOPPLER INFORMATION INTO THE VELOCITY ESTIMATES, 3. ACCOUNT FOR A DISTRIBUTION OF TARGET DEPTHS CORRELATED TO THE TARGET SPEED, 4. ACCOUNT FOR THE CORRELATION BETWEEN TARGET SPEED AND SIGNAL STRENGTH,5. ACCOUNT FOR DIRECTIONAL AMBIENT NOISE. WE PLAN A FULL SUITE OFTESTS TO MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TRACKER USING BOTH SIMULATED DATA AND REAL DATA COLLECTED FROM NAVY EXERCISES.
