Abstract : This report details three areas of research undertaken during the past contractual year. First, detailed explanations are provided concerning the modifications made to Tracor's Hybrid Tracking Algorithm (HTA) to improve its overall tracking performance. Second, a summary is provided of Tracor's preliminary investigation into the use of cluster analysis techniques to sort data in the multi-target tracking problem. Finally, a description is provided of an experimental design technique known as response surface methodology. (Author)
