Abstract
The report is a survey of target tracking techniques for automated radar surveillance. It attempts to highlight the important issues which are: 1) the choice of coordinate system in which to make target measurements, to initiate or associate tracks, and to update and display these tracks; 2) the choice of filter for prediction and smoothing of track data; 3) the techniques to be employed for conflict resolution, when ambiguities arise in the association of new target observations with existing tracks; 4) the use of manoeuvre-detection procedures, when the target-in-track deviates from its modelled mode of behavior; and, 5) the process of initiating a new track automatically, by combining past measurements to form a likely trajectory of a target of interest. An extensive bibliography pertaining to these topics is provided.
