In order to resolve the problem of track-to-track association in a distributed multisensor situation, this paper presents independent and dependent sequential track correlation algorithms based on Singer's and Bar-Shalom's algorithms. Based on sequential track correlation algorithm, the restricted and attenuation memory track correlation algorithms and sequential classic assignment rules are proposed. In this paper, these algorithms are described in detail. Then, the track correlation mass and multivalency processing methods are discussed as well. Finally, simulations are designed to compare the correlation performance of these algorithms with that of Singer's and Bar-Shalom's algorithms. The simulation results show that the performance of these algorithms proposed here is much better than that of the classical methods under the environments of dense targets, interfering, noise, track cross, and so on. Under the above situations, their correct correlation ratio is improved about 69 percent over the classical methods
