This report documents the double sweep smoothing program used at AMSAA to determine an aircrafts position, velocity, and acceleration from radar tracking data. It includes a tutorial guide to the underlying mathematics. A quadratic programming problem with linear constraints is formulated, reduced to a system of difference equations with initial and endpoint boundary conditions, and solved using Brysons double sweep method. The iterative solution is programmed in simple, machine independent FORTRAN with top down structured programming. A listing is supplied and card decks are available.
