In general, bearing measurements combined with the derived heading increases the accuracy of target state estimate in bearing only tracking (BOT). Here, Lagrange five point difference (LFPD) method is proposed for deriving the heading measurements. This method is compared with Lagrange three point difference (LTPD) and centered difference (CD) method by considering the scenario of two sensors tracking a single target. The bearing and derived heading measurements from two sensors are fused using measurement fusion (MF) technique. The nonlinear Extended Kalman filter (EKF) is implemented using fused measurement to obtain the optimized target state estimate. Performance analyses are made between LFPD compared with LTPD and CD by considering without and with fusion technique. Simulation results indicate MF-LFPD performs comparatively better. © 2019 ISIF-International Society of Information Fusion.
