There exist a number of powerful methods for detecting small low observable targets with stationary dynamics in image sequences provided by IR and other imaging sensors (see e.g.12). However, these methods need to be extended to handle maneuvering targets. In this paper, we demonstrate that banks of interacting Bayesian filters (BIBF) can be utilized for this purpose. We are considering target dynamics modeled by jump-linear systems. In contrast to previous studies, we do not assume that the mode jump process is a Markov chain. In particular, we allow the probabilities of jumps to be conditioned on the state variable. Then, we present a computationally efficient (real time) algorithm for detection and tracking of low observable agile targets. A comparison of BIBY and IMM approaches is carried out in a simple example.
