Abstract

In this study, the Time Difference of Arrival Averaging (TDOAA) method is studied to minimize the estimation error and increase the accuracy for emitter location finding using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). We combined TDOAA method with both classic and improved version of PSO and found out a considerable performance increase on the location finding of the transmitter. The improved PSO is to combine different tasks of implementations of PSO for a single decision. Therefore the improved PSO also means more accuracy but price is paid for more complexity. However, the increase on complexity does not prohibit applying the technique, since coherence time for decision may well tolerate more complexity when using today's state of art microprocessors processing power.
