Abstract:

An optimal smoothing technique for processing survey navigation data is described, and a FORTRAN 4 computer program implementation is presented. The technique makes efficient use of navigation redundancy to produce an improved survey plot. The smoothing program, capable of operation in a variety of navigation modes, has been exercised using real and simulated survey data and is shown to have significant accuracy advantages. Author
