Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A method is derived for forming composite measurements when the line-of-sight measurements from multiple sensors are asynchronous and the position(s) of one or more passive sensors is (are) unknown. Using the composite measurement, the target position, velocity, and unknown sensor location are estimated. Additionally, general analytical observability conditions are derived.
