Tracking and surveillance techniques
The purpose of this training is to provide listeners with the basic knowledge and justification for the different surveillance and target tracking techniques in a complex environment.
The course lasts 5 days (30 hours).
After a review of the basic definitions and general principles concerning the sensors used, the course is oriented towards a detailed analysis:
- of tracking and surveillance techniques
- of different algorithms
- of associated architectures
The following is included in this approach:
- Recent developments in tracking algorithms
- Development towards sensors in networks and multi-sensor systems
A site visit to Thales illustrates the application of these techniques.
Course level: Basic/Advanced
This course is intended for any engineer wishing to increase their knowledge in the field of surveillance and target tracking, whether as a designer or user of these techniques.
Basic knowledge in radar and optronic detection and theoretical knowledge of signal processing would be beneficial.
The following courses:
- ELA 001 Introduction to radar
- ELA 006 Performance capabilities and applications of radar
- ELA 007 Radar systems: existing and future concepts"
- ELA 015 Optronics
- MTS 001 Signal processing: conventional techniques
can also contribute to this knowledge.
