NavtechGPS Seminar (NEW): Inertial Systems, Kalman Filtering and GPS / INS Integration (Course 546)

This new four-day course will take place at the Bay Club Hotel and Marina in San Diego, California, December 8-11, 2014.

It will be taught by Dr. Alan Pue, Johns Hopkins University, APL and Mr. Michael Vaujin, Aerospace Consultant.

This course is for GPS/GNSS professionals who are engineers, scientists, systems analysts, program specialists and others concerned with the integration of inertial sensors and systems, those needing a working knowledge of Kalman filtering, or those who work in the fields of either navigation or target tracking.

Prerequisites are:

  • Familiarity with principles of engineering analysis, including matrix algebra and linear systems.
  • A basic understanding of probability, random variables, and stochastic processes.
  • An understanding of GPS operational principles in Course 356, or equivalent experience.

This new course will immerse the student in the fundamental concepts and practical implementations of the different types of Kalman filters that optimally fuse GPS receiver measurements with a strapdown inertial navigation solution. The course includes the fundamentals of inertial navigation, inertial instrument technologies, technology surveys and trends, integration architectures, practical Kalman filter design techniques, case studies, and illustrative demonstrations using MATLAB®.
