Summary and Info
This book covers all aspects of inertial navigation systems (INS), including the sensor technology and the estimation of instrument errors, as well as their integration with the Global Positioning System (GPS) for geodetic applications. Complete mathematical derivations are given. Both stabilized and strapdown mechanizations are treated in detail. Derived algorithms to process sensor data and a comprehensive explanation of the error dynamics provide not only an analytical understanding but also a practical implementation of the concepts. A self-contained description of GPS, with emphasis on kinematic applications, is one of the highlights in this book.The text is of interestto geodesists, including surveyors, mappers, and photogrammetrists; to engineers in aviation, navigation, guidance, transportation, and robotics; and to scientists involved in aerogeophysics and remote sensing.
