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...
Advanced readout and control electronics for mems gyroscopes
Temiz, Yüksel; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis reports the development of advanced readout and control electronics for MEMS gyroscopes developed at METU. These gyroscope electronics are separated into three main groups: high sensitive interface circuits, drive mode amplitude controlled self oscillation loops, and sense mode phase sensitive amplitude demodulators. The proposed circuits are first implemented with discrete components, and then integrated on CMOS chips. A self oscillation loop enabling constant amplitude drive mode vibrations in...
Visual detection and tracking of moving objects
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this study, primary steps of a visual surveillance system are presented: moving object detection and tracking of these moving objects. Background subtraction has been performed to detect the moving objects in the video, which has been taken from a static camera. Four methods, frame differencing, running (moving) average, eigenbackground subtraction and mixture of Gaussians, have been used in the background subtraction process. After background subtraction, using some additional operations, such as morpho...
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...
