  4. Abstract:
  5. An algorithm, by cooperation of multiple flying vehicles, is developed to localize a moving target in the presence of measurement noise and mis-modeling. It works based on jointly sharing information and data fusion by using a recursive Bayesian estimator and a searching guidance law to direct each flying vehicle to a position where the probability of target detection is maximum. To evaluate this algorithm, a high fidelity simulation program with six degrees of freedom dynamics is also developed
