Findings from S.K. Han and Co-Authors Provide New Insights into Radar and Sonar Research (Linear recursive passive target tracking filter for cooperative sea-skimming anti-ship missiles)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- New research on Radar and Sonar Research is the subject of a report. According to news originating from Taejon, South Korea, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "This study addresses the passive target tracking problem using the range difference (RD) information measured by sea-skimming anti-ship missiles. Apart from the conventional non-linear filtering approaches, the RD-based passive target tracking problem is newly formulated within the framework of the recently developed non-conservative robust Kalman filter (NCRKF)."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "By applying NCRKF, the authors are able to cope with the performance degradation in the process of adopting linear measurement model as well as to determine the desirable missile formation in view of target tracking performance. Moreover, the proposed filter might be adequate for the real-time multiple-missile applications for its linear recursive structure."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Through the simulations for a typical missile homing scenario, it is shown that the proposed scheme could provide faster convergence rate and better target tracking performance than the previous methods."
