Assessment of trajectory processing algorithms in air traffic control radar systems: measurement association


V.Yu. Kiselev – Post-graduate Student, Saint Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation. E-mail: А.А. Monakov – Dr.Sc. (Eng.), Professor, Saint Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation. E-mail:

With the air traffic and surveillance facilities evolvement many theoretical issues of tracking systems synthesis have been covered but not the ones assessment problems. The paper introduces a set of data association performance parameters and its evaluation tech-niques. Parameters tested in typical for air traffic control radar tracking scenario. Comparative analysis of data association algorithms based on Bayesian and non-Bayesian approaches, global and local association strategies was carried. Developed parameter set is useful for assessment of data association algorithms in radar tracking systems.
