EMPIRICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF IPC TRACKER PERFORMANCE USING DABS DATA
The performance of a set of tracker algorithms proposed for use in the DABS-based Intermittent Positive Control (IPC) collision avoidance system is assessed. The position projecting tracker algorithms are subjected to actual surveillance data obtained at the Lincoln Laboratory DABS Experimental Facility. Effects of turn-rate, speed, wind and surveillance accuracy upon heading error, speed error and position error are presented.
