Just _either_ use apostrophes around it: ie wite 'Kalman' or 'Kalman Filter'
or trust that the CRAN maintainers may have seen the name before.

It is one of the older CRAN dependencies which unfortunately has an
unsuitable license. I believe there are now alternatives, the interp package
may be what you want.
