Abstract
This paper develops models for centralized and distributed trackers that account for target fading effects. The models build on earlier work by the author, and introduce: (1) sensor performance statistics based on a standard Rayleigh amplitude assumption; (2) the impact of false contacts on true track formation and maintenance. We exercise the models in a number of ways, to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of centralized and distributed fusion architectures. Our findings are qualitatively consistent with sea trial based performance analysis.
