Abstract : The document gives the proceedings of a conference on the theory and application of nonlinear estimation (filtering). The symposium was held in San Diego, California on September 21-23, 1970. The proceedings include over forty papers sponsoring the subject. The purpose of the conference was to bring together the theorist and those responsible for implementing the filters. Examples of papers include: Status of Radar tracking algorithms; some practical applications of estimation models to spacecraft radio tracking data; the problem of real data in Statistical Filtering; nonlinear and other modeling errors in the C-5 Inertial System Kalman Filter; Spars: Hardware and Software; Experience with a Space System Using optimal filtering; and a comparison of two nonlinear filters for ballistic trajectory estimation.
