Recursive Bayesian estimation methods are applied to several angle-only
applications. Air-to-air passive ranging, in addition to an air-to-sea
application with terrain induced constraints, is discussed. The incorporation
of terrain information improves estimation performance. The bearings-only
problem is also discussed using experimental data from a torpedo,
i.e. sea-to-sea with a passive sonar sensor. The Bayesian estimation
problem is solved using the particle filter and the marginalised
particle filter. For comparison, a filter bank method using range
parameterised extended Kalman filters is used.
