Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An implementation of a joint filter (JF) for unmanned aircraft formation missions is proposed. Such a filter utilizes the fact that velocity of formation members is almost the same in its core structure. In that manner, an advantage of a JF is in situations in which one of the targets is not detected, yet its state can still be estimated.
