Abstract : A general procedure for radar resource allocation is presented. It requires the computation of the covariance matrix of the position estimates. Therefore, four estimation algorithms commonly used for track are evaluated and compared. A tracking measure applicable to the non-tactical EAR system is defined. Finally, a schema for track and search allocation is presented. An example illustrates how the tracking measure is computed and use in the track and search algorithm. (Author)
