Herein, we present robust shrinkage range estimation algorithms for which received signal strength measurements are used to estimate the distance between emitter and sensor. The concepts of robustness for the Hampel filter and skipped filter are combined with shrinkage for the positive blind minimax and Bayes shrinkage estimation. It is demonstrated that the estimation accuracies of the proposed methods are higher than those of the existing median-based shrinkage methods through extensive simulations.
