Abstract
A three-component system for tracking multiple moving objects is presented. A neural network is used to perform frame-to-frame data association. A Hough Transform system is used to perform multiple-frame data association and track correction. An estimation filter system is used to provide updated track estimates. The tracking ability of this integrated system is tested with realistic simulated flight trajectories. The system response to simulated measurement noise and estimation errors is detailed, and the interaction of the three system components to correct errors is illustrated. Optical processing is used in the neural net and Hough Transform systems.
