This paper describes the first results of applying a multi-sensor multi-hypothesis tracker, called M6T, to simulated and experimental sonar data sets. The simulated data have been generated in the context of the Multistatic Tracking Working Group (MSTWG). For a number of cases (number of sensors and number of input false contacts) we evaluate a set of metrics that describes the tracker performance. This set allows to compare different tracking algorithms.
