Abstract : State space techniques for obtaining math models of flight test vehicles with nonlinear measurement variables in many different moving bases are presented. Inertial measurement units (IMU on-board variables are related to the state variables of interest for obtaining a Best Estimate of Trajectory (BET). (Author)
