Abstract

Efficient localization of a ballistic missile is an important task in missile defense problems. This paper formulates and solves the sensor placement problem for efficient estimation of the missile location. The first part of this paper develops a mathematical framework for the localization of the missile using multiple sensors based on Cramer-Rao lower bound (CRLB) analysis. We derive the Fisher information matrix to facilitate the evaluation of estimation accuracy. The second part of the paper presents an evolutionary algorithm for obtaining the sensor placements. Simulation results show that the evolutionary algorithm outperforms a greedy sensor placement algorithm and obtains sensor placements with very low estimation error.
