Abstract:

A geometric inertial navigation system with a gyrostabilized platform oriented in the horizontal plane is described. Equations of dynamics, introduced in an earlier work by V. A. Karakashev, are made more precise and an evaluation of the methodical errors arising from translational and Coriolis accelerations is presented. Numerical calculations indicate that these methodical errors are considerable but can be compensated for by the accurate measurement of the system parameters. Deriving the differential equations of the system from its kinematic block diagram simplifies their solution and allows one to evaluate the influences of separate dynamic elements in more comprehensive investigations by means of control theory methods.
