Abstract:

A method of determining the orientation of the axis of a missile in flight is presented. Several solutions to this problem have evolved for the case of two stations where there is no overdetermination of the parameters. If it is desirable to use data from more than two stations there is an overdetermination of the orientation of the missile axis and some adjustment procedure must be used. The solution presented is a least square procedure developed to solve this problem.
