Abstract:

This paper focuses on accuracy and other technology trends for inertial sensors, Global Positioning Systems GPS, and integrated Inertial Navigation System INSGPS systems, including considerations of interference, that will lead to better than 1 meter accuracy navigation systems of the future. For inertial sensors, trend-setting sensor technologies will be described. A vision of the inertial sensor instrument field and strapdown inertial systems for the future is given. Planned accuracy improvements for GPS are described. The trend towards deep integration of INSGPS is described, and the synergistic benefits are explored. Some examples of the effects of interference are described, and expected technology trends to improve system robustness are presented.
