Abstract:

The problem of transferring alignment between two airborne inertial navigator platforms is treated using the Kalman filter approach. The important parameters are identified and exercised over a reasonable range to establish accuracy trade-offs. Suggestions are provided for improving the accuracy of Kalman filter transfer alignment through more complex maneuvers of the carrying aircraft.
