Target localization is commonly achieved by a decentralized two-step approach. Recently, studies proposed new promising centralized one-step algorithms. Using an active radar network, we study here the detection and estimation performances of a (one step, Direct Position Determination based) direct target position and velocity determination algorithm. Numerical results show the improvement of the proposed algorithm compared to a classical two-step method. The proposed method is also experimentally verified on real data.
