In this study, an expert system based EA and tracking system is developed and the performances of these systems are optimized. Tracking system consists of a monopulse tracking radar and a Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) algorithm. MHT is modelled as a measurement‐oriented approach, which is capable of initiating tracks. As each measurement is received, probabilities are calculated for the hypotheses and target states are estimated using a Kalman filter. Range Gate Pull-Off (RGPO) is selected as an EA technique to be developed because it is accepted to be the primary deception technique employed against tracking radar. Two modes of RGPO technique; linear and parabolic, according to time delay controller are modelled. Genetic Algorithm (GA) Toolbox of MATLAB is used for the optimization of these systems over some predetermined scenarios. It is observed that the performance of the tracking radar system is improved significantly and successful tracking is achieved over all given scenarios, even for closely spaced targets. RGPO models are developed against this improved tracking performance and deception of tracking radar is succeeded for all given target models.

Implementation and performance evaluation of a three antenna direction finding system
Arslan, Ömer Çağrı; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
State of the art direction finding (DF) systems usually have several antennas in order to increase accuracy and robustness to certain factors. In this thesis, a three antenna DF system is built and evaluated. While more antennas give better DF performance, a three antenna system is useful for system simplicity and many of the problems in DF systems can be observed and evaluated easily. This system can be used for both azimuth and elevation direction of arrival (DOA) estimation. The system is composed of thr...
Dense depth map estimation for object segmentation in multi-view video
Çığla, Cevahir; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, novel approaches for dense depth field estimation and object segmentation from mono, stereo and multiple views are presented. In the first stage, a novel graph-theoretic color segmentation algorithm is proposed, in which the popular Normalized Cuts 59H[6] segmentation algorithm is improved with some modifications on its graph structure. Segmentation is obtained by the recursive partitioning of the weighted graph. The simulation results for the comparison of the proposed segmentation scheme w...
Doppler radar data processing and classification
Aygar, Alper; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, improving the performance of the automatic recognition of the Doppler radar targets is studied. The radar used in this study is a ground-surveillance doppler radar. Target types are car, truck, bus, tank, helicopter, moving man and running man. The input of this thesis is the output of the real doppler radar signals which are normalized and preprocessed (TRP vectors: Target Recognition Pattern vectors) in the doctorate thesis by Erdogan (2002). TRP vectors are normalized and homogenized dopp...
Representation of covariance matrices in track fusion problems
Günay, Melih; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Covariance Matrix in target tracking algorithms has a critical role at multi- sensor track fusion systems. This matrix reveals the uncertainty of state es- timates that are obtained from diferent sensors. So, many subproblems of track fusion usually utilize this matrix to get more accurate results. That is why this matrix should be interchanged between the nodes of the multi-sensor tracking system. This thesis mainly deals with analysis of approximations of the covariance matrix that can best represent this...
