The radar resource management problem in a multitarget tracking scenario for multi-function radar is considered. To solve it, an optimal balancing of the sensor budget by applying Lagrangian relaxation and the subgradient method is proposed. In a time-invariant scenario it is shown that the proposed method will lead to balanced budgets based on...
