Abstract : This paper presents a simplified adaptive tracking filter for a maneuvering target. The filter is very simple and easy to implement. No prior knowledge of the maneuvering characteristics is needed; the tracking errors are quite small when the target maneuvers. While the target does not maneuver, the tracking errors are a bit larger than others, but are still much smaller than measurement errors. This method can be used either with linear measurements or nonlinear measurements. Simulation results for various target maneuvers are presented. (Author)
