Paper Abstract

This paper presents an algorithm to initiate tracks of a ballistic missile in the initial exoatmospheric phase, using line of sight measurements from one or more moving platforms (typically satellites). The major feature of this problem is the poor target motion observability which results in a very ill-conditioned estimation problem.
