Quality of service resource management for a radar network
The resource management problem for a network of radars is formulated in this paper as a quality of service constrained optimisation problem. Conditions for the optimal solution to the problem are derived from the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) conditions. An algorithm is presented that extends the single radar Q-RAM algorithm by satisfying the KKT conditions for the radar network case. The algorithm is demonstrated on a target tracking control problem, where it is shown that the proposed multiple sensor Q-RAM (MSQRAM) method enables an increased number of targets to be tracked with a better estimation error in comparison to locally optimised radar nodes.
