COOPERATIVE SYSTEM

A missile guidance system that requires transmission of information from a remote ground station to a missile in flight, processing of the information by the missile-borne equipment, and retransmission of the processed data to the originating or other remote ground stations, as in azusa and dovap.

ESTIMATED POSITION

The most probable position of a craft determined from incomplete data or data of questionable accuracy. Such a position might be determined by applying a correction to the dead reckoning position, as for estimated current; by plotting a line of soundings; or by plotting lines of position of questionable accuracy. If no better information is available, a dead reckoning position is an estimated position, but the expression estimated position is not customarily used in this case. The distinction between an estimated position and a fix or running fix is a matter of judgment.
