Optimal observation trajectory of an active maneuvering radar

Abstract

This article deals with the path optimization problem of aircrafts observing ships, using Kalman estimation. Observing that the continuous version of the Kalman filter equation is a Riccati differential equation, we formalize the problem as a minimization of the integral of the covariance trace. This integral is constrained by the Riccati equation coupled… (More)
