track before detect in phased array system s.t. sonar, radar using the Bingham distribution.

What is it about?

kalman filter like tracking algorithm using phased array observations, implementing predict and update steps in complex bingham filter. prefiltering for MUSIC algorithm

Why is it important?

This work is a new method for direction finding and target tracking by phased array observation in very low SNR situations. Our method is only subspace tracking method for target tracking in phased array systems that is Bayesian structure and moreover, has a closed-form solution for predict and update steps. Other similar methods are based on particle filter and Monte-Carlo simulation.
