Contact-level multistatic sonar data simulator for tracker performance assessment
This paper provides an overview of a multistatic sonar contact-data simulation approach and a dataset generated specifically for tracker algorithm evaluation by the Multistatic Tracking Working Group (MSTWG). A brief description of the simulation approach is given, which includes simple sonar equation modeling, resulting in sensor-to-sensor target fading effects, as well as contact localization modeling. We describe the methodology by which a single data set generated using this approach is suitable to evaluate multistatic tracker performance over a range of multi-sensor detection redundancy levels.
