Abstract : A new class of precision positioning systems, including GPS (Global positioning systems), and MIDS (Multiple information distribution system) hold enormous significance to NATO systems effectiveness. This symposium addressed the status of such programs and the strap-down inertial technology which emerged as the core element in guidance and control. This meeting further addressed advanced filtering concepts for hybrid navigation systems, redundancy management, and operational requirements and concepts.
