Abstract : A model of the TWS radar is developed that provides a realistic computer simulation for comparing various radar tracking methods. Prediction accuracy of a simplified alpha - beta tracker is compared to that of an adaptive filter. In addition, the effect on radar tracking of a variable gate size correlation technique is investigated. (Author)
