NORTH ATLANTIC (NAT) AIDED INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM SIMULATION. VOLUME I. TECHNICAL RESULTS

Current air traffic operations over the North ATlantic (NAT) and the application of hybrid navigation systems to obtain more accurate performance on these NAT routes are reviewed. A digital computer simulation program (NATNAV - North ATlantic NAVigation) is developed to evaluate the performance of navigation systems for future commercial NAT aircraft operations. Error models are developed for aided-inertial navigation systems with external measurements from Doppler radar, Omega, satellite-ranging or air data. (Modified author abstract)
