VERTICAL ACTIVITY ESTIMATION USING 2D RADAR
AbstractUnderstanding airspace activity is essential for airspace control. Being able todetect vertical activity in aircraft allows prediction of aircraft intent, therebyallowing more accurate situation awareness and correspondingly more appropriateairspace control response. The method for qualitative vertical activity estimation aspresented is characterised by a very fast response time and requires minimal sensorinput. The method relies on the interplay of two opposing motion prediction models.The efficacy of the method is demonstrated in both simulated and real-world data.
