Abstract

For the sake of a higher accuracy of active aircraft GPS tracking, the tracking algorithm based on pseudo-linear Kalman filter is hereby proposed. This algorithm simplifies geometrical and algebraic relations to obtain a pseudo-linear model, then tracking the target by means of Kalman filter algorithm. Meanwhile, the tracking algorithm is studied to build a velocity & position tracking model and a velocity & acceleration tracking model. As shown by the experimental result, the tracking algorithm based on pseudo-linear Kalman filter can meet the requirement of active aircraft GPS tracking, but also attain a higher tracking accuracy in velocity & acceleration tracking model.

Keywords
