Abstract
The efficient use of a search-surface radar or sonar, in which one or more targets appear on the screen intermittently usually demands a device for tracking the targets automatically. Such a device, called a "track while scan system", must make an estimate of each target's instantaneous position from the sampled-data information provided by the radar. For this purpose, an a-8 filter and an optimal Kalman filter, that must track maneuvering targets, are analyzed here and compared in terms of tracking accuracy for tactical applications.
