Target tracking performance is determined by the fidelity of target mobility model (F, Q), tracking sensor measurement quality (R), and sensor-to-target geometry (H). A tracking sensor manager has choices in sensor selection/placement (H), waveform design (R), and filter tuning (F and Q), thus affecting the tracking performance in many ways. This paper(More)
This paper analyzes the effects of special target-sensor geometries, particularly, some degenerate cases (near singular observation matrix), on the performance of target positioning and tracking. A scenario of practical significance is when two or more sensors form nearly parallel line of sight (LOS) vectors to targets. Examples include netted radars that(More)
