Graduate Seminar Series, Dr. Renato Zanetti, University of Texas at Austin

Title: Nonlinear Estimation for Orbit Determination By Renato Zanetti, Ph.D. Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, The University of Texas at Austin ABSTRACT: Linear estimators such as the various Kalman filter implementations, often provide subpar results in terms of accuracy and/or consistency for highly nonlinear systems. Their reliance on only a covariance matrix to represent the uncertainty…
