Abstract

Hierarchial radar resource management uses multi object Markov decision scheduling with a constraint on the resources. In this paper we give a detailed description of constrained multi-object Markov decision scheduling in its general form and the separation that is achieved in the dynamic programming level using Lagrange multipliers. We then apply this general model to obtain a simultaneous beam and waveform scheduling method for radars based on an objective function that depends on both state and action. This method extends on a previous hierarchial method for beam scheduling with an objective function defined only on state. We further improve the objective function based on entropy reducti..
