Earlier work on the angles and angular rate initial orbit determination problem has been extended to allow the incorporation of arbitrary amounts and mixtures of angles and angular rate data. The statistical estimation technique used is that of Maximum Likelihood. Numerical tests on six widely different satellite orbits indicate that the orbital elements can generally be computed to 1% from data acquired during a single apparition.
