An analytical technique is presented which can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the track monitoring scheme presented by J.A. Roecker (see ibid., vol.27, no.6, p.872-6, Nov. 1991) in detecting false track-to-track (ghost track) assignments without the use of simulations. It is shown that when two tracks are traveling in parallel and in the direction of the inclination angle, it is impossible to determine which tracks to associate. However, track monitoring is effective under all other circumstances. A tracking algorithm designer can use this technique to determine the length of time before track-to-track initiation for good ghost track rejection. This technique also determines the probability of accepting ghost tracks during mature track monitoring.
