Abstract
THE INTENT OF THIS WORK IS TO DEVELOP AN ADVANCED ESTIMATION ALGORITHM FOR MANEUVERING TARGET STATE ESTIMATION AND PREDICTION. THE ALGORITHM WILL BE USED FOR FIRE CONTROL IN THE LOCAL AREA DEFENSE ROLE. THE TARGET STATE ESTIMATOR USES TWO DIMENSIONAL INFRA-RED ELECTRO-OPTICAL IMAGERY AND RADAR DATA TO COMPUTE CURRENT AND PREDICT FUTURE TARGET STATES. INCLUDED IN THIS ANALYSIS WILL BE ALGORITHMS FOR PATTERN RECOGNITION, GEOMETRIC CONVERSION, KINEMATIC-TO-ASPECT CONVERSION, AND ASPECT ANGLE ESTIMATION. THIS WORK WILL THEN BE COUPLED WITH AN EXISTING KINEMATIC STATE ESTIMATOR. THE RESULT WILL BE A REALISTIC PREDICTOR OF THE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE REALIZABLE WHEN RADAR MEASUREMENTS ARE AUGMENTED WITH OPTICAL SENSOR MEASUREMENTS IN PREDICTING TARGET STATES.
