Paper Abstract

Terrain aided navigation (TAN) is an efficient way to periodically correct the error accumulation of INS. The imaging laser radar is an ideal imaging sensor in TAN for the low-flying aircraft and unmanned air vehicles for the high precision multi-dimensional data acquisition capability and concealable attribute. In this paper, a new framework for applying the laser radar to terrain aided navigation is put forward. Then a new adaptive fused Kalman Filter is proposed to improve the accuracy and robustness. At last, the key factors affected the algorithm are analyzed and the comparative experimentations are presented. The simulating experiments show that the proposed algorithm improves the location accuracy, and has good initial error tolerance and fine robustness. It shows that this approach is a valid solution for the application.
