A complete survey of modern tracking methods. Basic tracking fundamentals as well as advanced tracking concepts are explained with simple examples that are easy to follow and understand. In many instances I have gone to this book to understand things that were incomprehensible in journal articles. The book covers the basics of sensors, target dynamics, Kalman filtering, multiple hypothesis tracking, data fusion, reasoning schemes, sensor resource management, and more. My favorite chapter is the last: Detection and Tracking of Dim Targets in Clutter. If you are involved with tracking this book will be a valuable companion.
