Cannon Fired Ball with Relative Velocity


Radar is assumed to be tracking a cannon launched projectile travelling in a 2 dimensional drag environment. Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is explored for the estimation of position and velocity of the projectile. Simulation is carried out using MATLAB and the results are presented. Finally, based on the results, EKF is recommended for tracking the projectile.
