Hierarchical resource management in adaptive airborne surveillance radars
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2006
In this paper we present hierarchical resource management algorithms for adaptive airborne surveillance radars. By abstracting the physical layer sensor performance into a quality of service measure, the resource management problem is formulated as a constrained Markov decision process. A two-level (two-timescale) resource management algorithm is presented based on Lagrangian relaxation. A numerical example is given with scenarios involving different target densities.
