Paper Abstract

The Integrated Global Positioning System (GPS)/Inertial Navigation System (INS) is a cost effective way of providing an accurate and reliable navigation system for civil and military aviation. These systems also provide low cost solutions to mid-course navigation and guidance of medium and long range weapon systems. In this paper an error model is developed which can be used for GPS/INS filter mechanization. It is known that the model has a linear and a non-linear part. The latter consist of a quadratic function of system states and may be approximated by a noise term thereby allowing the use of the well known Kalman Filter (KF) design technique. KF algorithm suitable for this application is also developed, and computer simulation results for a typical aerospace application are given.
