Underwater Passive Target Tracking in Constrained Environment


In underwater scenario, observer manoeuvre is required to find out target motion parameters in bearings only passive target tracking. Sometimes, due to tactical constraints, observer is not able to carry out manoeuvre. In this paper, it is shown that target motion parameters can be obtained in such situation, if the knowledge of any one of the target motion parameters is available. There are other practical problems like spurious bearings are generated by sonar, etc. In addition, auto tracking fails often and some bearings will be missed. Pseudo Linear Kalman Filter is made flexible to address these practical problems.
