With GPS and INS hardware becoming ever smaller and less expensive, innovative opportunities for commercial navigation systems are everywhereNand continue to arise. Integrated GPS/INS systems have some real advantages, in terms of output rate, reliability, and accuracy. The Global Positioning System and Inertial Navigation is the first-ever reference to provide engineers and scientists with a detailed, top-to-bottom look at GPS and INS in a single volume.
This in-depth text provides navigation system designers comprehensive and accurate coverage of such topics as coordinate frames and transformations, Kalman filtering techniques, navigation system performance analysis, GPS receiver ephemeris and pseudo-range processing, differential GPS, carrier phase processing, and attitude determination. Extensively cross-referenced to the literature on advanced navigation system design, this superb engineering reference is ideal for navigation systems designers, analysts, and project managers.
