In this work, we formulate the multiple sensor alignment problem in an Earth-centered Earth-fixed (ECEF) coordinate system. The alignment algorithm maps the sensor measurements to the ECEF coordinates using a geodetic transformation, and attributes the discrepancies in the Earth-referenced system reported by each sensor to the sensor biases. Sensor biases are then estimated using the least squares (LS) technique. Simulated and real-life radar data are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm. Comparisons are made to those algorithms based on the standard stereographic projection
