Fundamentals of High Accuracy Inertial Navigation

by Avril B. Chatfield

The Editorial Board is represented by Lockheed Martin, University of Michigan, Texas A&M, Draper Laboratories, US Air Force Academy, MITRE, Pennsylvania State University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Written for students and engineers, this book covers physical and mathematical principles which define INS systems.

The text is divided into three parts: inertial navigation, inertial navigation with aids, and accuracy analysis.

This book is intended for third or fourth-year engineering students, as well as professional engineers and scientists trained in mathematics, control theory, analytical mechanics, geodesy, or physics. It is a valuable text for anyone with a need to understand inertial navigation principles.
