Abstract:

This report provides a three-dimensional mathematical analysis of two types of inertial navigators in use today. The resulting analytical expressions give the inertial navigators position and azimuth errors in terms of the sensing instrument performance. The same equations can be used in analyzing the rotational motion of a gravitationally stabilized satellite. The results of this study may prove to be applicable to mobile missile programs, which at present propose to use systems of the sort analyzed here. Author
