MULTI-SENSOR NAVIGATION SYSTEMS FOR DEEP-OCEAN MINING

Five integrated marine navigation systems have been evaluated for potential application to the deep-ocean mining problem. Included as navaids were the NNS (Transit), OMEGA, water-speed doppler, radio buoys, a gyrocompass, and an IMU. Detailed mathematical models have been developed for all the different navaids. Using these models, a minimum-variance filter has been designed to efficiently process the navid data. Simulation results are presented of the rms errors in the estimates of ship's position and velocity for all candidate systems.
