AbstractThe continual advances in military system technologies compel the Test & Evaluation community to constantly mature and adapt test methodologies and instrumentation capabilities. The need for alternate approaches aimed at collecting in-flight missile Time Space Position Information (TSPI) that compliment on-system high dynamic GPS and radar is just one example that supports the development of new techniques and numerical methods. The primary objective of this technical paper is to provide conceptual details pertaining to a methodology that can determine a TSPI solution based on telemetry signal strength or data arrival time combined with the Newton-Raphson Jacobian method for solving a multivariate system of equations.
