In order to reduce the angle component of measurement noise (cross-range errors), we propose multisensor tracking system with the airborne and stationary sensor. The airborne sensor is a phased array sensor witch an aircraft carries. In the proposed system the airborne sensor moves in order to keep the pencil beams from the airborne and stationary sensors to be orthogonal. Therefore the proposed system minimizes cross-range errors and high tracking quality could be obtained. Simulation results are given for a comparison of tracking performance of our proposed system with that of conventional systems.
