The time interval of the observational data changes irregularly because of the difference of sensors' sampling rate, the communication delay and the target leaving observation region of the sensor sometimes. These problems of asynchronous observation data greatly reduce the tracking accuracy of the multi-sensors system. Therefore, asynchronous data fusion system is more practical than synchronous data fusion system, and worthier of study. By establishing an asynchronous track fusion model with

The simulation result shows that the algorithm has better tracking performance compared with other algorithms, so that this kind of problem of track-to-track fusion for asynchronous sensors is solved effectively.
