X-band radar systems represent a flexible and low-cost tool for ship detection and tracking. These systems suffer the interference of the sea-clutter but at the same time they can provide high measurement resolutions, both in space and time. Such features offer the opportunity to get accurate information about the targets state and shape. Accordingly, here we exploit an extended target tracking methodology based on the popular Probability Hypothesis Density to get information about the targets observed in an actual X-band radar dataset. For each target track we estimate the targets position, velocity and acceleration, as well as its size and the expected number of radar returns.
