Abstract

Optimal trajectories for two platforms with similar dynamics are calculated using a game theoretic formulation. Each platform makes noisy observations of the kinematic state of the other. The objective of each is to maximise observable information about the other while minimising the information the other is able to acquire about it. That is to say, each platform maximises the mutual information between the expected future measurement of the opposing platform and the current likelihood of the state whilst minimising the estimated mutual information between potential measurements of itself by the other and its actual state. The multi-objective optimisation problem for each platform is convert..
