The benchmark problem addresses the efficient allocation of an agile beam radar in the presence of highly maneuverable targets and radar ECM. The multisensor benchmark tracking solution s aided by the presence of a scanning IRST. This paper presents methods for applying an IMM/MHT tracker to this multiple sensor tracking and resource allocation problem. The paper discusses the manner is which IMM/MHT tracking and data association methods lead to efficient agile beam radar allocation and presents results showing that this approach is significantly more efficient than previously proposed methods when only radar data are used. It presents a hybrid multisensor tracking architecture in which an IMM/MHT tracker operating on IRST data provides the global IMM/MHT tracker with selected observations. Simulation results quantify the potential improvement from the use of advanced tracking methods and IRST data to enhance agile beam radar tracker capability.
