I am using KFAS to fit a dynamic logistic model of the form;

$\hat{y} = \bf \beta_t x + \epsilon$

$\beta_t = \beta_{t-1} + \eta$

So the regression parameters change over time, and act as latent variables to be estimated by the filter.

Can state space models of this form generally accept situations where we have multiple observations per time period? I believe they can, but I can't figure out how to specify this in KFAS (or any other R package for that matter).

I've tried the below code, but KFAS thinks that this means there are 22 time periods - there are actually only ten.

y = c(1,0,0,0,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,1)
i = seq.Date(from = as.Date("2014-01-01"), as.Date("2014-01-10"), length.out = 22)
x = rnorm(n = 22, mean = 1, sd = 2)

a =   model = SSModel(y ~ 
                  distribution = "binomial")

fit = fitSSM(a, inits = c(0,0))

as you have given 22 normally generated values to x , KFAS would take 22 time periods only. What else do u expect?

You can add multiple observation in rformula.
SSMregression(rformula, data, type, Q, index, R, a1, P1, P1inf, n = 1, remove.intercept = TRUE, state_names = NULL, ynames)
