For analysing dynamic scenarios with ground moving vehicles, airborne GMTI radar is a well-suited sensor due to its wide area, all-weather, day/night, and real time capabilities (GMTI: Ground Moving Target Indication). The generation of GMTI tracks from GMTI data is essential for producing a “recognised ground picture” as well as for analysing traffic flows. This contribution is the second out of two twin papers on ground target tracking. In part I the properties of the radar sensor used are presented (Richard Klemm, Ulrich Nickel, Wolfgang Koch: Single ground target tracking with adaptive monopulse. Part I: The sensor). In part II we describe aspects of the tracking algorithm used and present selected numerical results. Special emphasis is placed on a suitable modelling of the sensor properties within the tracker.
