Paper Abstract

Present day accumulation of data by range instrumentation is predicated upon the angle of its pointing axis relative to the mis-sile trajectory and its ability to follow the flight of the missile. The general types of flight performance data requires keeping the vehicle within the field of view of various types of photographic, ER sensors, and micro-wave instrumentation. The geographic location of the tracking instrumentation relative to vehicle launch and flight path, vehicle velocity and acceleration, determines how stringent a tracking system is required.
