Abstract
This proposal describes a plan to use novel GPS/INS integrated system in the navigation, guidance and control system of microsatellites. The novel GPS/INS integration scheme will allow inexpensive attitude and position estimation with high fidelity and robustness. During Phase I we design such system and provide plans for integration within a microsatellite. A laboratory demonstration of the prototype will be performed during Phase II.
