The lack of a utilitarian solution to the frame-to-frame correlation problem poses insurmountable difficulties for the successful passive observation of a collection of co-moving, nearly co-located objects. This is exactly the task faced in a scenario with respect to intercontinental ballistic missiles of the multiple re-entry vehicle delivery type. This report presents the conceptual framework for a potentially viable correlation algorithm. As well, the formal mathematical explication of the technique is included and applied to a specific illustrative example.
