A new methodology for the tracking of maneuvering targets is presented. A quickest detection scheme based on the innovation sequence is developed for a prompt detection of target maneuvers. Optimal length of a sliding window that minimizes the maneuver detection delay for a given false alarm rate is determined. After maneuver detection, system model is modified by adding a maneuver term. A recursive algorithm is proposed to estimate the maneuver magnitude. With this estimate, a modified Kalman filter Is used for tracking. Simulation results demonstrate the superior performance of our algorithm especially during target maneuvers.
