Abstract
A VARIETY OF SENSORS WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR DAMPING INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEMS THROUGHOUT LONG DURATION MISSIONS. TO PROVIDE MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY, A KALMAN FILTER DAMPING ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED SUITABLE FOR ACCURATELY ESTIMATING AND PROPAGATING THE INS ERRORS OVER LONG PERIODS OF TIME. THIS FILTER SHALL BE DESIGNED TO ACCEPT INPUTS FROM A VARIETY OF SENSORS AND SHALL BE CAPABLE OF MODELING DIFFERENT QUALITIES OF INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEMS. THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PROPOSED DAMPED INS SYSTEMS SHALL BE DEMONSTRATED USING THE NAVTEST SIMULATION TOOL DEVELOPED BY NAVSYS. THE RESULTS OF THIS ANALYSIS SHALL BE USED TO PERFORM A COST/BENEFIT TRADE-OFF AND SELECT AN OPTIMUM MECHANIZATION TO BE DEMONSTRATED UNDER PHASE II.
