This paper discusses stability and robustness properties of a recently proposed observer algorithm for linear time varying systems. The observer is based on the approximation and subsequent modification of the non-negative Lyapunov exponents which yields a (non-uniform) exponentially stable error system. Theoretical insights in the construction of the observer are given and the error system is analyzed with respect to bounded unknown inputs. Therefor, new conditions for bounded input bounded

It is shown that for a specific class of linear time varying systems, a cascaded observer based on higher order sliding mode differentiators can be designed to achieve finite time exact reconstruction of the system states despite the unknown input. A numerical simulation example shows the applicability of the proposed approach.
