Localization, Tracking, Maneuvering
Improving the accuracy and reliability of the localization estimates and tracking of underwater targets is a constant quest in ocean surveillance operations. The localization estimates may vary owing to various noises and interferences such as sensor errors and environmental noises. Even though adaptive filters like the Kalman filter subdue these problems and yield dependable results, targets that undergo maneuvering can cause incomprehensible errors, unless suitable corrective measures are implemented. Simulation studies on improving the localization and tracking estimates for a stationary target as well as a moving target including the maneuvering situations are presented in this paper
