The performance of a sensor blending scheme for two different band-width sensors is significantly improved when a Kalman filter is used to blend the outputs vice classical control methods. This Kalman filter signal blender is designed and implemented in a computer program developed for this thesis. Several tracking scenarios are simulated and analyzed. These scenarios are representative of the input expected into the sensors on a Space Based Laser.
