    Localization of Active Aerial Targets Using Targets with Known Location

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Kaviani, Saber (Author) ; Behnia, Feridoon (Supervisor)
    Localization of radio, acoustic and vibration wave’s sources by passive systems has many applications in positioning systems, navigation systems, wireless sensor networks, defense, security, and geophysics. RSS, AOA, TDOA, and FDOA are some of the techniques available for passive localization. The performance of TDOA/FDOA techniques does not degrade with distance and multipath, but it may suffer from poor performance for narrowband signals. On the other hand, FDOA technique requires narrowband signals. Thus, the combination of TDOA and FDOA can be suitable for a much wider range of sources. In addition, the TDOA/FDOA method can provide more accurate interference source localization compared...

    The Cramer-Rao lower bound for source localization based on Time Difference of Arrival and Frequency Difference of Arrival is investigated in this paper. The result is used for theoretical analysis of optimality in sensor placement. An optimal sensor-target geometry including sensors locations and velocities is presented and its properties is studied  

    Constrained optimization of sensors trajectories for moving source localization using TDOA and FDOA measurements

    , Article International Conference on Robotics and Mechatronics, ICROM 2015, 7 October 2015 through 9 October 2015 ; 2015 , Pages 200-204 ; 9781467372343 (ISBN) Adelipour, S ; Hamdollahzadeh, M ; Behnia, F ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper examines the problem of determining optimal sensors trajectories for localization of a moving radio source based on Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) and Frequency Difference of Arrival (FDOA) measurements in situations in which sensors are constrained both in their movements and regions of operation. By considering the movement of the source and constrained movement of the sensors, a constraint problem is formed which is solved to determine optimal trajectories of the sensors for source tracking. The validity of the proposed algorithm is assessed by two different simulation scenarios and the results verify its proper operation with estimation error decreasing in consecutive steps...
