This paper addresses the optimal linear estimation problem for a class of networked descriptor systems with multiple packet dropouts, measurement multiplicative noises and finite-step correlated process and measurement noises. Based on a fast–slow subsystem decomposition approach (FSD), the descriptor system is transformed into two reduced-order linear nonsingular subsystems with finite-step correlated noises. Optimal linear estimators including filter, predictor and smoother with corresponding estimation error covariance matrices for the states and noises of new systems are developed via the innovation analysis approach. Then, the optimal linear estimators are obtained for the original descriptor system. An example shows the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms.
