Paper Abstract

An algorithm is presented for absolutely aligning a sensor that measures range, bearing, and elevation. The alignment (or bias) errors are determined in this algorithm by comparing the sensor-reported positions for a target to an absolute or true standard. For example, the global positioning system (GPS) could be used as an absolute standard because it provides positions that closely approximate truth. A possible technique for absolute alignment using GPS is described in this paper.
