Abstract

We present a methodology for quantifying the effect of MIMO radar on tracking association performance. Two general factors affecting contact-to-track association are included. The first is a decrease in measurement error, in both Doppler and azimuth. The second is an increase in detection probability (due to enhanced discrimination of slow-moving targets from the clutter ridge), which effectively decreases the average time interval between track updates. The approach quantitatively evaluates the decrease in the probability of a track association error with a MIMO radar, to efficiently assess the design trades of system parameters.
