The subject of Integrated Navigation Systems is presented. Integrated navigation systems is the combination of an on-board navigation solution (position, velocity, and attitude) as derived from inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyros, etc.), and independent navigation data (aides to navigation) to update or correct this navigation solution. This combination is accomplished with Kalman filter algorithm(s).
This course is segmented into two parts. In the first part, elements of the basic mathematics, kinematics, equations describing navigation systems/sensors and their error models, aides to navigation, and Kalman filtering are reviewed. Detailed derivations are provided in the required textbook. Examples of applying the first part’s material, using the MATLAB/Simulink™ commercial product, are given to aid in the understanding of these elements of integrated navigation systems. Exercises are available in the textbook to expand the application of the materials presented.
