A Methodology for Estimation of Ground Phenomena Propagation

Sharon Rabinovich, Renwick E. Curry, Gabriel Hugh Elkaim

Abstract: In this paper, a methodology for estimating the periphery of propagating phenomena is presented. The methodology utilizes a Quantized Estimation to improve the predicted spread of a periphery and decrease the uncertainty of its current state. A procedure to construct the boundary and estimate the rate of spread is discussed. After the Quantized Estimator is determined, the algorithm is incorporated in a multi-UAV dynamic simulation to prove the concept of uncertainty suppression with various schemes for fleet deployment. The paper presents a detailed numerical analysis of the proposed algorithm and extensive simulation results.
