Abstract: An error analysis of a hypothetical target tracking system developed around an ongoing real-time attitude (RTA) project at the Space Programs Laboratory was performed at the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories. An extensive set of tables of target errors was developed as a function of a variety of collection geometries and system component random errors. The target tracking system includes RT A, a real-time positioning capability, an automatic target sensor, and a slant range measuring device. The system components were characterized in the study by their expected random errors. For example, the real-time positioning capability in this study reflects the expected range of GPS errors.
