Study Data from R. Zemmari and Co-Authors Update Knowledge of Radar and Sonar Research

June 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Fresh data on Radar and Sonar Research are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Wachtberg, Germany, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "This study describes the processing scheme of the FKIE (Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics) GSM-based passive coherent location (PCL) system, which consists of an antenna and signal processing adapted to the GSM waveform and of target tracking based on multi-hypothesis tracking."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "To overcome the limitations from a single bistatic transmitter-receiver pair, fusion of the measurements from different geometries is the key component of a GSM PCL system. The authors demonstrate a significant improvement in target position estimation from the tracking process on the basis of real data and theoretical performance bounds."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The impact of the transmitter-target-receiver geometry is discussed and the effect of the exploitation of prior context knowledge (e.g. clutter and land maps) on maritime traffic surveillance is shown."
