We introduce a detection and tracking algorithm for panoramic imaging systems intended for operations in high-clutter environments. The algorithm combines correlation- and model-based tracking in a manner that is robust to occluding objects but without the need for a separate collision prediction module. Large data rates associated with the panoramic imager necessitate the use of parallel computation on graphics processing units. We discuss the queuing and tracking algorithms as well as practical considerations required for real-time implementation.
