In this paper, we address the problem of joint tracking and recognition of a target using a sequence of high resolution radar (HRR) range-profiles. The likelihood function for the scene configuration combines a dynamics-based prior on the sequence of target orientations with a likelihood for range-profiles given the target orientation. A deterministic model and a conditionally Gaussian model for range-profiles are introduced, and the likelihood functions under each model are compared. Simulations are presented demonstrating recognition of mobile aircraft and ground targets, and results showing performance of the algorithm are given in terms of the expected angular estimation error and the rate of correct recognition
