In this letter, we consider a detection architecture where a track-before-detect processor elaborates the plot-lists provided on a scan-by-scan basis by the detector and plot-extractor of a radar system. We derive a novel track formation procedure in order to provide improved performance in the presence of multiple, closely-spaced targets. Numerical examples are provided to assess the detection capabilities and the accuracy in the estimation of the target position.

Abstract

In this letter, we consider a detection architecture where a track-before-detect processor elaborates the plot-lists provided on a scan-by-scan basis by the detector and plot-extractor of a radar system. We derive a novel track formation procedure in order to provide improved performance in the presence of multiple, closely-spaced targets. Numerical examples are provided to assess the detection capabilities and the accuracy in the estimation of the target position.
