Our preview and informed prediction of things to come in the Kalman Filtering
arena:
Besides the exciting areas of multisensor\multitarget tracking (sometimes pursued even in
clutter) [mathematically related to the problem of “optimal resource allocation” and solved by invoking either
the Munkres Algorithm or the
Hungarian Algorithm or Jonker
Volgenant Castanon’s (JVC)
Algorithm or Murty’s
Algorithm (1968) or TrackBeforeDetect in conjunction with use of Generalized
Likelihood Ratio (GLR) or Multi Hypothesis Testing (MHT) algorithms from the Operations Research
area (or the Auction Algorithm for a decentralized, distributed
implementation)], TeK Associates perceives some of the cutting edges of Kalman
filter\estimation theory and technology to be along the following six application fronts enumerated next:
1. Application of parallel
“BankofKalmanFilters”
(each having a different system model matched to or representing a different hypothesized underlying situation) with GLOBAL probability assessments of each filter possibly coinciding exactly with the TRUE situation [CURRENTLY prevailing and from which the ONLY measurements are availed throughout] being automatically calculated online as an integral part of this totally rigorous methodology for LINEAR systems.
As originally conceived of in 1965 by Mcgill but only relatively recently pursued for actual use within the last
three decades in
IR, GPS, Radar, and
multitarget Sonar
applications (since hardware has now caughtup to make these approaches
practicable). More flexible new variations from the Univ. of Connecticut (from
Prof. Yaakov BarShalom and his many students) are known as Interactive Multiple Models
(IMM), with transition probabilities that now obey a Markov chain law, with adjustable
“sojourn” times to tweak along with initial prior probabilities to
potentially improve performance in a better match to some particular applications.
2. Extension beyond standard
1dimensional (1D) random process Kalman filter scenario to 2dimensional (2D)
Markov Random Fields
(MRF) for image processing situations
used in motion blur reduction and noise abatement.
3. “Decentralized Kalman filter
formulations” tailored to applications where there is a natural fit and an obvious advantage to be exploited, such as in:

Online “Failure Detection, Identification, and
Reconfiguration”
(FDIR) in analytic (virtual) and actual redundancy management of complementary and supplementary sensors within coherently focused NAV Systems;


“Sensor Fusion” of framesynchronized scenes for multiple sensordedicated Kalman Filters using OPTIMAL and SUBoptimal combining
schemes (many more routine sensor fusion applications do not require use of
decentralized Kalman filters); 

Decentralized detection [combining decentralized Kalman filtering and hierarchical decision processes]; 

Generalization of Kalman filterbased Schweppe likelihood ratio to multiple filter situation, and nonlinear system situation
(nonGaussian noise statistics). 
4. Generalization of Kalman filterbased Schweppe likelihood ratio
from 1D to 2D situations.
5. A fully rigorous extension of the standard Kalman filter beyond those systems routinely described by ordinary differential equations
(ODE’s) to systems described by partial differential equations
(PDE’s) [using infinite dimensional
Banach space derivation techniques rather than the Hilbertspace techniques that Rudolph Kalman
had originally used in uncovering the appropriate Kalman Filter structure for optimal estimation] has materialized and matured in the last
50 years. (These
PDE’s are appropriate
to use in describing the monitoring of lakes, rivers, and streams for impurities & contaminating effluents
[corresponding to thermal & chemical fluxes], where the conduction type
linear PDE is encountered as a more appropriate mathematical description of
these systems than are ODE’s.)
As with Maxwell's equations, there are equivalent differential and integral
formulations.
6. In both
continuoustime and in discretetime, the nonlinear 1D in time
ndimensional Riccati Equation solution possesses two factors, both of which
propagate forward in time according to a (2n x 2n) linear matrix equation. One factor must first be inverted before
being multiplied by the other factor to jointly constitute a solution to the
Riccati equation of interest. This structural simplification likely generalizes to
both 2D and other Partial Differential Equation (PDE) Riccati equations as
well. Go to Top
TeK Associates’
primary software product for the PC is TKMIP,
which encapsulates both historical and recent statistical estimation and Kalman
filtering developments and performs the necessary signal processing of
implementation conveniently,
understandably, and accessibly. We
take human factors into account as we seek to make TKMIP™ intuitively responsive and easy to use
and less error prone than alternative approaches that do not yet crosscheck the
user all along the way, as we do. We also include concise tutorials that lay out and elucidate the entire
historical panorama of significant technical contributions that lead to the
technology’s current status. To that end, we include a 1000+ entry searchable
database listing of supporting applications papers and textbook citations
(different from the one below). We
seek to let the user have a pleasant experience (even fun) while using our software.
Now for
bookworms, we have the list below of likely
high interest...
It is important to be cognizant of new developments (by others)
that we view as being germane to our business interests:

Filtering approach is again implemented only for targets described by linear
systems, even under maneuvers. Strategic Reentry Vehicles are targets that
are well known to be adequately modeled only as being nonlinear in both the
dynamics and in the algebraic measurement model. This article also considers
Particle Filtering (PF) and Probabilistic Data Association (PDA) approaches
as well. As with almost all PF examples to date, the state space target
dynamics model used within the calculations is planar and consists of only 4
states. The complexity of PF implementation as a CPU computational burden
increases drastically as the state dimension increases. Practical Early
Warning Radar target models must be at least six states, and must be
nonlinear to realistically reflect the action of an inverse square gravity
and the oblateness of the earth (effects that cannot be ignored in a
realistic EWR application). Article doesn’t
reflect Bit Error Rates (BER) or possible requests for retransmission within
the communications channels as a consequence of BER. Article does not
consider having adequate processor capability at each sensor site, as would
be the case for EWR with two way communication links present to Colorado
Spring’s
Cheyenne Mountain, and which is more compatible with methodology of decentralized
filtering, reported on herein within Consulting Section. See “Sensor
Fusion”. Also see Ref. 335
below for how to handle the resulting effects of BER in simulations as a
random delay in the communications channel. (However, we do not endorse use
of the robust H_{infinity} estimator approach in Ref. 335.)]

being used for targets with nonlinear system dynamics is somewhat obscurred.
Target dynamics model for ground targets is usually purely linear but model
is not discussed explicitly in the paper. However, Ito correction term is
mentioned in connection with a representation of target motion. A purely
linear dynamics model should have Ito correction term that is identically
zero. Measurement model is definitely nonlinear but that has already frequently
been the case within earlier IMM results.)

M(k) were in fact known beforehand, then {x(k), M(k)} would, in fact, be a
Markov process as these authors rely on in their proofs. However, just how
the system will switch is unknown to the user or engineer a priori or even
immediately after the evolution in time of the system of interest having
this potential structure. Notice that the authors need to assume that the
underlying multiple model systems have a linear structure before a Gaussian
sums mixture model can be invoked. When models are nonlinear, probability
density function (pdf)
calculations are infinite dimensional in general (i. e., the calculations
for the associated probabilities are intractable). You can write expressions
that involve integral evaluations but you are SOL for realtime
computations. This is essentially Bucy’s representation result
as a ratio of integrals that need to be evaluated in order to have
what one needs in a solution for the general nonlinear estimation problem.]

[This new book, by an author with a Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory/University of California, Santa Barbara affiliation, offers
a reasonably wide modern coverage and good pointers to precedents just like
our own TeK Associates’
TKMIP
also offers but our software costs only $499. This new book also mentions their
associated TechniSoft SSPACK and SSPACKPC software made commercially
available for sale in 1992 and 1993 (see their Web Site at http://www.technisoft.net).
However, please be aware of the following perceived drawbacks: (1) Numerous typos
appear in
their Web Site descriptions of what their software is and what it does; (2) Lack of real
specificity in stating exactly what the software is capable of doing; (3)
That SSPCKPC requires user to have his own copy of MatLab
(itself, being rather
expensive) in order to run SSPACKPC; (4) That their TechniSoft Web Site
specifies use of MSDOS Operating System for PC version (among other Operating
Systems offered but not specifically calling out any version of MS
Windows,
or MS VISTA, or even Longhorn as merely a suspected
oversight I hope); (5) That SSPACKPC, at a cost of $1495 for a
SingleUser for SSPACkPC Supervisor, Pre and PostProcessor (along with
and additional $995 for other options like DiscreteTimeVarying Simulator
and Estimator and Discrete Time Nonlinear Simulation and Estimation), plus
$1,000/year for annual License renewal/Maintenance Contract (for Revisions,
Updates, Compatible OS Upgrades but for Workstation only), is rather
expensive after User is nickel and dimed to death; (6) That view of
SSPACKPC depicted in Appendix of the above book showns merely push button controls for SSPACKPC,
where pushbutton controls are notoriously limited but are merely what is available for Graphical User Interface (GUI) development from
The MathWorks for MatLabcompatible programs such as this. Also
notice that the limited low resolution GUI picture in the Appendix only
allowed the reader to confirm the presence of pushbuttons but that the
captions on the pushbuttons, that could potentially confirm GUI utility for
the reader, are indecipherable at such a coarse scale; (7) That
SSPACKPC, by being
linked with MatLab as its main computing engine, inherits all MatLab’s
limitations such as: (7a) needing MatLab’s
System Identification Toolbox in order to
perform Recursive Least Squares (RLS), as reminded on page 167; (7b) SSPACKPC
being a software program that normally runs interpretively as MatLab
itself does
(rather than as compiled software, as TKMIP does) and so SSPACK will also
be notoriously slow in comparison as a consequence of this structure; (7c) SSPACKPC
needs other expensive
MatLab
Toolboxes in order to run properly (as already identified); (7d) the
alternative TechniSoft SSPACK software (without the hyphenated “PC” suffix) is in 1992
FORTRAN (prior to benefits of FORTRAN 1995) source code that costs $3,500 for a SingleUser Workstation plus
$1,000/year for annual License renewal/Maintenance Contract (for Revisions,
Updates, Compatible OS Upgrades); (8) That the required memory size for SSPACK
is 4 Megabytes and 25 Megabytes of Disk Space and that of SSPACKPC
includes what is neccessary for running MatLab and its associated
Toolboxes. TKMIP has a much smaller footprint and can run in just 16
Megabytes of RAM and is independent of MatLab, while
applications requiring 256 Megabytes of RAM are not unheard of for running
realistic MatLab simulations; (9) That SSPACKPC is evidently not
equipped with an outofthebox capability of processing sensor measurements
availed to the program through PC DMA or Serial Ports, or wireless, or USB, using the vast
array of modern serial protocol options, as is a capability of TKMIP.
(TKMIP is
selfprompting and doesn’t need a training course in order to use it. TKMIP
is intuitive to use and tracks the user’s
processing actions as well.)
TKMIP evidently costs much less at $499 and can do so much more and is
easier to use by possessing a much more flexible and compliant GUI. One
final note: Unlike studies and pursuits undertaken at Sandia or at Johns Hopkins
University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL),
Lawrence Livermore is better known for handling energy and nuclear studies and not
for handling navigation or
target tracking, and so, any estimation and state space simulation software
developed at
Lawrence Livermore evidently harkens back
to mere earlier experience during educational pursuits of those key employees as an apparent
academic
“me
too!”
endeavor. The prior experience of our critical personnel at TeK Associates is in mainstream Department of
Defense R&D and DT&E navigation applications for
terrestrial, naval, and airborne applications, done while at The
Analytic Sciences Corporation {TASC}, while at Intermetrics, Inc.
(both the preceding two businesses being spinoffs in 1967 and
1969, respectively, from navigation specialists at Charles Stark Draper Laboratory
and Dynamics Research Corporation {DRC}, DRC itself being a
spinoff from Draper Laboratory), and while at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where radar
and IR target tracking are routinely performed along with airborne
INS/GPS investigations associated with their multisensor test aircraft. Such realistic
pursuits are also within the goals of TeK
Associates’s
prior clients: MITRE, XonTech, Raytheon, and
Arête.
I strongly suspect that TeK Associates is more aware of and attuned
to
“what
engineers want”.
To J. V. Candy’s
credit, within his nice book, he didn’t
fall for any of the robust control and/or robust estimation
“malarkey”
that permeates most of the current research literature, nor do we at TeK
Associates fall for such techniques that can not yet be used in realistic
situations. This is always our touchstone for determining true utility. We
routinely apply the
“smell
test” too.]

study
stacks up benefits and drawbacks to conclude that both EKF and UKF performed
well for integration of MEMSbased IMU and GPS, with and without GPS
blockage. However, Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) was deemed
superior in seamlessly handling situations where large initial attitude
errors are present without needing to initiate special inmotion alignment
activities. TeK Associates’
observation here is that this postprocessing analysis study neglected to include
a consideration of total operations counts incurred or a particular
algorithm’s
ability to keep up with
processing demands in realtime navigation applications, where
timeliness of computed results should be a primary consideration. This is where
use of the Unscented Kalman Filter is less satisfying and where use of an Extended Kalman
Filter (EKF) would win the contest hands down. This is TeK Associates’
assessment of the situation based on our experience in both INS/GPS and
in EKF.]

Filtering with Intermittent Observations,” IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control, Vol. 49, No. 9, pp.
14531464, Sept.
2006. [Use of automatic time tags or time stamp upon
receipt, as commonly routinely used to accompany the sensor measurement
data, makes most of this paper moot since one explicitly knows the time that
corresponds to the data being received. Even if a significant amount of time has
elapsed since the measurement was generated before the measurement is ready and available for incorporation, there are
simple formulas (in the recent literature by Y. BarShalom, immediately
below as Ref. [376]) for properly
incorporating past data to properly account for the senescence of the data
in performing a Kalman filter update. Predicted covariance is claimed to
sometimes go unbounded but this paper claims to provide expressions for
both the upper and lower
bounds of the predicted covariance. Having upper bounds would seemingly defy
claim of covariance going unbounded as an obvious contradiction. Material on
random sampling is a repeat of what was in vogue and published 30 years ago.
For a confirmation, please see the work of Selvin.]

Linear Combinations of TripleFrequency Carrier Phase Measurements,” Navigation:
Journal of the Institute of Navigation, Vol. 53, No. 1, pp. 6167,
Spring 2006. [While there is considerable
fanfare over the simple mathematics encountered within the
minimization of a 3dimensional ellipsoidal paraboloid subject to a linear
planar constraint, this particular optimization problem is well known to be
tractable and to have a similarly well known closedform solution. Despite
how easy the solution is, the two authors mannage to botch the solution in
going from Equations 21, 22, 23 to Eq. 24 by forgetting to square alpha,
beta, and gamma appearing in Eq. 24. This minor error in algebraic
manipulation makes all of their consequential numerical results invalid!]

TeK Associates
is also following recent serial gigabit per second rate developments in VXS
(Switched Fabric for 6U VMEbus such as Infiniband, Serial RapidIO, PCI
Express & PCI Express AS, Gigabit Ethernet, StarFabric
and associated specifications as, respectively, VITA 41.1, 41.2,.41.3, 41.4,
41.5), XMC (Switched Fabric Mezzanine
Module), and VITA 49 Digital IF Forum.
TeK Associates
has also become aware that the best of both worlds may now be achieved by
ruggedized packaging of Commercial OfftheShelf (COTS) cards and
processors in Line Replaceable Units (LRU’s) and in ARINC 3/4 ATRs
to match prior Form, Fit, and Function (F^{3}). TeK Associates
is especially enthusiastic about the emerging PCI Express standard that is
already shipping on 200 Million Laptops in 2006 and more in 2007 and PCI Express’s
capability for handling multiple CPU’s and cables up to 7 meters long
and with data rates of 10 GigaHertz/Second each way and to be low cost as well (
$30$40) with high end multiple CPU versions at ~ $100 (and also 3U version
already
approved by the PXI Consortium)! To aid in making the transition as
gentle as possible over the next few years, new computers will have both the
older PCI ports as well as the new PCI Express (PCIe) ports. (As of early May
2006, the IEEE Draft 802.11n, constituting emerging Wireless standards, failed
to pass but did pass in September 2009.) Meanwhile a new standard is evolving for the Small Computer
System Interface (SCSI) as a serial version aptly named Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS). According to page 7 of the November 2006 issue of Military
& Aerospace Electronicss, Vol. 17, No. 11, “VITA and
VME Technology Mark 25Year Milestone,”
it is stated that “VME
technology is in more than 25 million products”. In the past, nearly 60 VME technology specifications have been defined to
meet the evolving needs of critical embedded systems. Most recently, VITA
introduced VPX VITA 48 specifications to enable networked fabrics in 6U
rugged systems, VITA 51 methods to determine system reliability, VITA
56 mezzanine module options, and VITA 58 packaging schemes to
make systems more robust and interchangeable. Go
