Inertial Navigation
instantaneous output of position and velocitycompletely self containedall weather global operationvery accurate azimuth and vertical vector measurementerror characteristics are known and can be modeled quite wellworks well in hybrid systems
Inertial Navigation
Position/velocity information degrade with time (1-2NM/hour).Equipment is expensive ($250,000/system) - older systems hadrelatively high failure rates and were expensive to maintainnewer systems are much more reliable but still expensive to repair Initial alignment is necessary - not much of a disadvantage for commercial airline operations (12-20 minutes)
Inertial Navigation – Basic Principle
If we can measure the acceleration of a vehicle we canintegrate the acceleration to get velocityintegrate the velocity to get positionThen, assuming that we know the initial position and velocity wecan determine the position of the vehicle at ant time t.
