Abstract

In this paper, we consider the problem of scheduling the waveform transmitted by waveform-agile radar sensors to track multiple targets in clutter. A number of generalized frequency modulated chirps with trapezoidal envelope form the library of waveforms available to the sensors, which obtain measurements using a nonlinear observation model. A joint probabilistic data association filter is used to track the target, and the waveform selection is made so as to minimize the predicted mean square tracking error. We provide simulation results to show that the scheduling improves the tracking performance of multiple targets even in the presence of clutter.
