The integration of multiple sensors for target tracking is complex but has the potential to provide very accurate state estimates. For most applications, each sensor provides its information to a central location where the integration is performed and the resulting composite track can be very accurate when compared to the individual sensor tracks. This composite track has the potential to provide enhanced system decisions and targeting information not otherwise available. However, sensor bias can severely degrade composite tracking performance when it is not properly considered. This paper presents algorithms and simulation result for the composite tracking of maneuvering targets through the use of multisensor-multisite integration in the presence of sensor residual bias.
