Abstract:

The report describes a an outline of the Kalman-based tracking procedure for reentry trajectories, b a detailed derivation of a mathematical model to implement this procedure in radar polar coordinates, and c methods for checking, via simulation, the degree of degradation introduced by model simplifications and other changes.
