Discriminating Between Splitting and Crossing Targets: a Radar Tracking Problem Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
It can be difficult to discern between crossing and splitting targets when looking at radar tracks. Radar tracking problems such as this are important to modern ballistic missile defense, but parameters such as the radar bandwidth, visibility time, and the relative speed of the objects can obscure interpretation. A human decision-making model was developed to aid in interpretation, and 3001 simulated radar tracks were analyzed at MIT-Lincoln Laboratory using this algorithm. Operating curves were created to describe the model's performance.
