Abstract : Battlegroup Command Control and Communication Systems require that the force tracking picture developed by aggregate force sensors be accurate, nonredundant, and registered appropriately in each platform's coordinate frame. This report discusses further results in the development of systems, denoted Force Track Alignment systems, that satisfy these requirements. The evaluation methodology is discussed and performance data is presented that demonstrates the effectiveness of an FTA system that is composed of a Kalman bias estimation algorithm coupled to a sequential, track history dependent correlation process.
