Abstract : The modified Kalman filtering technique offers several distinct advantages over filters used previously in radio guidance equations. Presented are: a derivation of the Kalman filter; the filter force, measurement, and noise models; the transition matrix and coordinate transformation matrix derivations; a description of the modified filter equations; and results obtained from a computer program using the modified filter equations.
