Sequential detection of target trajectory using the decision statistics of pips

Algorithms of target trajectory detection using the likelihood functions of the pip with maximum decision statistic and all the pips in the tracking strobe have been synthesized on the basis of the Wald sequential criterion. These algorithms were analyzed using the statistic simulation for the case of detecting the target trajectory from data of surveillance radar measuring the range and radial velocity of target.
