Abstract : The use of a search memory for correlation in automatic tracking in track-while-scan systems is examined. Several memories, some previously proposed by industry and some suggested here, are compared and the types suitable for single- and multiattempt correlation are identified. An inherent requirement for frequent changing of stored information makes some memories undesirable, and the impact of this requirement should be carefully examined whenever an application of search memory is considered.
