Beginning with the basic principles of navigation, Integrated Navigation and Guidance Systems takes a step beyond introductions with a concise look at the flight applications of inertial navigation systems integrated with Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite systems. Written at the senior engineering college level, the textbook takes a tutorial approach, weaving interrelated disciplines together with interactive computer exercises and AINSBOOK software for error analysis and Kalman filter simulation.
Readers will benefit from the more than 25 years of engineering and teaching experience and 4000 flight hours of Professor Biezad. The AINSBOOK software is the work of Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt, a senior scientist with extensive experience at NASA and in the aerospace industry.
Get a "technical jump start" with a look at traditional navigation radio aids, inertial guidance systems, and Kalman filters. Launch into GPS applications to navigation, precision approach and landing, attitude control, and air traffic control. More than 100 figures, photos, and tables add to the textbook's value.
Integrated Navigation and Guidance Systems is an excellent, reader-friendly reference for any aerospace professional working in development and testing of advanced integrated navigation systems.
Hardware Requirements: AINSBOOK is available to PC-compatible users working in a Windows 95, Windows NT, or DOS environment.
