Abstract : The study presents an analysis of the influence of geometrical factors upon trilateration solutions. The results are in a form which find general application to many station configurations and target trajectories. A discussion of velocity variances is presented in sufficient detail to demonstrate the interdependence of station configuration and target dynamics. This discussion yields useful criteria for use in the design of a range and range-rate measuring system. The study also includes an analysis of single-station solutions for comparison purposes.
