Abstract : The report is a study of aircraft tracking techniques. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the sensitivity of tracking performance to the data environment. This environment includes velocity and acceleration measurements in addition to position data. Primary emphasis is placed on the determination of the effects of data rates and accuracies on the accuracy of the resultant track predictions. The study phase reported is concerned solely with linear tracking systems. (Author)
