MIXED INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEMS FOR SURFACE EFFECT SHIPS

High speed marine vehicles such as Surface Effect Ships impose several unique constraints on navigation system design. Particularly significant is the current lack of a reliable and accurate velocity sensor during high speed cruise operation. This paper describes the accuracy performance of several mixed inertial navigation systems which do not involve the use of a velocity sensor. Specifically considered are NAVSAT-INERTIAL, OMEGA-INERTIAL, and NAVSAT-OMEGA-INERTIAL systems. The accuracy performance information which is presented presumes the use of optimal (Kalman) processing of the available position data.
