Abstract:

PROFGEN, an aircraft flight profile generation program obtained from the United States Air Force Avionics Lab, has been modified for use in the simulation of a strapdown inertial navigation system being developed at DREO. The program allows the user to specify initial flight parameters to control the dynamics of a point mass aircraft in three dimensions. Outputs of PROFGEN are used to drive models of inertial sensors and develop navigation algorithms. An example flight profile employed in the simulation is described.
