Performance modelling and validation for distributed multistatic tracking. Coraluppi, S. SR-397. February 2005.
This report develops a distributed multi-sensor tracker performance model that accounts for the target fading effect that we observe in sea trial data. We study model-based performance as a function of key tracker parameters, the choice of tracker architecture, and the number of distributed sensors. We validate the fidelity of the model by comparing model-based performance with actual tracker performance based on simulated contact data
