Bird-strike avoidance system usually uses marine radar with limited resolution for surveillance of low-altitude airspace. When the target of interest is flock in high target density, the targets are so closely spaced so one cell on the radar display always represents several birds. Therefore, it is sometimes not necessary to detect and track individual target with accuracy. In this paper, a central group-target tracking algorithm is proposed to track the overall flock behavior, and we consider… CONTINUE READING
