This paper presents a survey of the applications of the Lainiotis filters to the problems of active and passive tracking. Specifically, the Adaptive Lainiotis Filter is discussed, as well as a pseudolinear Lainiotis (partitioning) filter specially developed for passive tracking applications. The performance of the Adaptive Lainiotis Filter, the Extended Kalman Filter and the pseudolinear Lainiotis filter are evaluated via simulation experiments. It is shown that the Lainiotis filters are very succesful when used as tracking algorithms, especially when the target is manoeuvering, a very realistic situation and one in which the Extended Kalman Filter has been shown to fail.
