A discusssion of ttthe nature of adaptive inferential measurement, the mathematics of trajectory analysis, and simulation on a Control Data G-15 computer of the inferential method in trajectory analysis are presented in this volume. A model and data are presented for the inferential simultaneous measurement of atmospheric density factor, target velocity components, and the conventional ballistic coefficient Beta sub 0. Two new ballistic coefficients are defined as a result of the theoretical derivation of the major perturbation effects caused by object rotations during re-entry. Author
