Abstract

A novel radar energy control strategy based on an improved Interacting Multiple Model Particle Filter (IMMPF) tracking method is presented in this paper. Firstly, the IMMPF tracking method is improved by increasing the weight of the particle which is close to the system state and updating the model probability of every particle. Based on this improved IMMPF method, an energy control method for Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) is then presented, which controls the emission time and power of radar according to the target's range and radar cross section (RCS), under the condition of constant detection probability. The tracking accuracy and LPI performance are demonstrated in the Monte Carlo simulations. The results are validated through the comparisons with other methods.
