Abstract:

During the contract year 1 October 1978 through 30 September 1979 considerable progress was made toward implementing a new Lincoln Orbit Determination LODE software capability at MIT Lincoln Laboratory for precise post-mission determination of reentry vehicle trajectory and motions during both exo- and endo-atmospheric phases of flight. Early in the year, RRI completed preparation of all equations for the Kaman-based forward-backward filter-smoother algorithm which provides the optimal LODE estimation capability.
