- The computer program for the real-time acquisition and tracking program uses a variety of filtering algorithms including an extended Kalman filter to derive real-time orbit determination (position-velocity state vectors) from shipboard tracking and navigation data. Results from Apollo missions are given to show that orbital parameters can be estimated quickly and accurately using these methods.
