About the book

Kalman filter (KF) since its conception by Kalman in 1960 has found applications in many branches of science and technology leading to many variants of the KF such as EKF, Second-order KF, UKF, particle filter, ensemble KF. The present book aims to provide generic codes for the researchers to cut down their development times and thus providing more time for the analysis.

The contents of the book will be written by multiple authors and edited by an expert in the field. Authors are not limited in terms of topic but encouraged to present a chapter proposal that best suits their current research efforts.

We accept scientific papers that can be presented as original research papers and review papers. The required length of the full chapters is 10-20 pages and the chapters should be original works (not republished).

As a self-contained collection of scholarly papers, the book will target an audience of practicing researchers, academics, Ph.D. students and other scientists. Since it will be published as an Open Access publication, it will allow unrestricted online access to chapters with no reading or subscription fees.

About the editor

Mudambi Ananthasayanam

Indian Institute of Science

Prof. M. R. Ananthasayanam has contributed extensively to the field of Aerospace Engineering, in a career spanning more than 50 years. His research activities and contributions include about 200 publications spread over reports, conferences, and journals and have guided many M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses. He was involved in consultancy and design reviews for ISRO, CSIR, and DRDO. He has taken part in the committees for selecting faculty positions, thesis evaluations of various IITs. He has been a reviewer for Current Science, Acta Astronautica, Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets and many more. After his B. E. in Electrical Engineering from Madras University in 1961, he joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering at IISc, Bangalore where he obtained his M.E. and Ph.D. He has been with the IISc until 2004 when he retired as Professor. His Ph.D. thesis was on flight safety with Prof. Narasimha as an advisor is a spin-off from their work for Prof. Dhawan’s AVRO Evaluation Committee. Subsequently, they proposed the Indian Standard Tropical Atmosphere and the International Tropical Reference Atmosphere from sea level up to 2000 km. He has been a Member of the Task Team to revise the COSPAR 1972 document. He has further contributed to the modeling of space debris, and the ionosphere. Apart from research, his teaching, development, and consultancy activities also led invariably to research publications. He contributed extensively to the application of Kalman filtering for state and parameter estimation, in diverse areas such as aerospace flight test data analysis, tracking of aircraft and missiles, space debris, ionosphere, GPS/INS integration, attitude estimation and docking of spacecraft, and tomography. He continued his research pursuits after retirement. His vast research experience culminated in the recent publications [SADHANA, 2016] with his associates, provided the Reference Recursive Recipe for the notorious problem of tuning the Kalman filter statistics existing ever since 1960 Kalman proposed the filter. With the above, it is envisioned that a proper application of the filter will never be the same again.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Lada Bozic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
