Abstract : The patent relates to a radar tracking system and more particularly, to a track detection system which presents decisions relative to the existence of a target track rather than a sequence of decisions relative to target positions. It refers specifically to a track before detect system which uses a process consisting of cross correlation of radar data with a class of possible tracks followed by a decision or detection process.
