SENSOR-INDEPENDENT INTEGRATION: BACK TO BASICS IN NAVIGATION SYSTEM DESIGN

Integrated navigation systems have evolved in response to the increasing requirements for more accurate navigation of marine survey vessels. Some systems have been better than others in terms of choice of devices for combination, or in mathematical handling of data from the respective sensors, but all have been inflexible in terms of interchange of sensor types or adaptation of new devices. This paper studies the basic philosophy of navigation system design with primary consideration given to system objectives and control structure. The result is a sensor-independent approach to integrated navigation system design.
