In this study a new neural network algorithm is proposed for real time multiple source tracking problem with cylindrical patch antenna array based on a previous v reported Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm(MN-MUST). The proposed algorithm, namely Cylindrical Microstrip Patch Array Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm (CMN-MUST) implements W-MUST algorithm on a cylindrical microsttip patch array structure. CMN-MUST algorithm uses the advantage of directive pattern of microstrip patch elements by considering only a part of array elements for a chosen sector. This reduces neural network sizes and also improves the spatial filtering performance. The proposed algorithm improves MN-MUST algorithm in the sense of accuracy and speed while covering the full azimuth range. It is observed that the CMN-MUST algorithm provides an accurate and efficient solution to the target-tracking problem in real time.

In this study, a neural network(NN) based algorithm is proposed for real time multiple source tracking problem based on a previously reported work. The proposed algorithm namely modified neural network based multiple source tracking algorithm (MN-MUST) performs direction of arrival(DoA) estimation in three stages which are the detection, filtering and DoA estimation stages. The main contributions of this proposed system are: reducing the input size for the uncorrelated source case (reducing the training tim...
DESIGN AND SIMULATION OF CIRCULAR ARRAYS OF TRAPEZOIDAL-TOOTH LOG-PERIODIC ANTENNAS VIA GENETIC OPTIMIZATION
Gurel, L.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2008-01-01)
Circular arrays of log-periodic (LP) antennas are designed and their operational properties are investigated in a sophisticated simulation environment that is based on the recent advances in computational electromagnetics. Due to the complicated structures of the trapezoidal-tooth array elements and the overall array configuration, their analytical treatments are prohibitively difficult. Therefore, the simulation results presented in this paper are essential for their analysis and design. We present the des...
Advanced Models for Predicting Aggregate Rutting Behavior
Ceylan, Halil; Güçlü, Alper; Tutumluer, Erol; Pekcan, Onur (null; 2005-06-29)
Artificial neural network (ANN) based advanced aggregate rutting models have been developed and compared for performance using laboratory test data. The primary goal has been to properly characterize the loading stress path dependent permanent deformation behavior from advanced repeated load triaxial tests that can simulate in the laboratory the varying stress states under actual moving wheel load conditions. The aggregate specimens tested were the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) specified P209 base a...

[1] A modified neural network - based algorithm ( modified neural multiple-source tracking algorithm (MN-MUST)) is proposed for real-time multiple-source tracking problem. The proposed approach reduced the input size of the neural network without any degradation of the accuracy of the system for uncorrelated sources. In addition, a spatial filtering stage that considerably improves the performance of the system is proposed to be inserted. It is observed that the MN-MUST algorithm provides an accurate and ef...
