Paper Abstract

This paper considers the problem of tracking a boost vehicle and predicting its future position using a satellite-based passive optical sensor. The portion of the powered-flight under observation is assumed to be relatively short. Two approaches are studied: a profile-based iterative least-squares algorithm and an extended Kalman filter. Their performances are evaluated using simulated test cases.
