The optimization of algorithms for an airborne infra-red search and track (IRST) demonstrator is described. Models of the detection and tracking algorithms have been produced and evaluated using real trails data. An automated process, using a genetic algorithm, was used to optimize the performance and significant improvements have been achieved. Various performance metrics have been developed to quantify performance of the algorithm.
