Title

"Saturn Apollo guidance error estimation."

Description

A brief sketch of the development of the equations for a weighted least squares estimator is given, the equations for both collective and recursive estimators being included. Four possible problem sources that may be encountered in the application of the estimator are identified. Various "success" parameters are defined in an attempt to predict the success with which, the method has been applied. The application of the estimation technique to the problem of computing various error parameters associated with the ST-124M guidance platform is described with the numerical results obtained using a manufactured data case are presented. These results are used to form conclusions about the effectiveness of the "success" parameters and preferred approaches to the problem of system evaluation using techniques of estimation theory.
