An incremental model for maneuver detection and estimation for use in target tracking with the Kalman filter is described. The approach is similar to the multiple Kalman filter bank, but with a memory for the maneuver status for the track under consideration. The advantage of this approach is that the target acceleration can be more accurately estimated. The maneuver-detection model has shown good maneuver-following capability. Moreover, it needs only a finite number of Kalman filters to handle all possible maneuver values and it responds quickly as maneuver occurs. When there is an abrupt maneuver change the model can still track the targets in short time
