Abstract : In order to integrate multiple sensor data into a single air picture, the individual sensor data must be expressed in a common coordinate system, free from errors due to site uncertainties, antenna orientation, and improper calibration of range and time. The process of ensuring the requisite error free coordinate conversion of sensor data is called registration. This paper develops a Generalized Least-Squares Estimation technique for sensor registration and compares quantitatively this technique with of some the standard methods in use today. (AN)
