Abstract:

This report contains the analysis and documentation of subroutines which contain the capability to efficiently compute the state vector and transition matrix needed for the Kalman Filter in TRAM, a post flight estimation program. The analysis contains the development and testing of algorithms to numerically integrate, perform numerical partial differentiation and interpolate using Spline polynomials. The subroutines, which are documented in this report, use these algorithms to compute the state vector and transition matrix for the Kalman Filter. This capability has more general use than for TRAM.
