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. Exercises are available in the textbook to expand the application of the materials presented.

Software examples of Integrated Navigation Systems from the textbook, implemented in the MATLAB/Simulink ™ commercial product, are provided for a hands-on experience in the use of the mathematical techniques developed.
