Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 21: Nonlinear and Kalman Filtering Techniques, Part 3 of 3 presents the developments in the techniques and technology of the application of nonlinear and Kalman filters. This book provides substantive examples of the methods and technology of the application of Kalman and nonlinear filters.

Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the unique and relevant treatment of postflight data analysis. This text then examines the control and filter problems for the interception of torpedo-ship situations. Other chapters consider the MLS algorithm, which has been shown to be a superior algorithm in terms of stability and tracking performance when compared to existing least squares batch algorithm that use both a transition matrix and a measurement. The final chapter deals with the significant trends in integrated communication and navigation systems.

This book is a valuable resource for mechanical and aerospace engineers.
