The emerging technology of very inexpensive inertial sensors is available for navigation as never before. The book lays the analytical foundation for understanding and implementing the navigation equations. It starts by demystifying the central theme of the frame rotation using such algorithms as the quaternions, the rotation vector and the Euler angles. After developing navigation equations, the book introduces the computational issues and discusses the physical aspects that are tied to implementing these equations. The book then explains alignment techniques.Introduction to Modern Navigation Systems offers an efficient algorithm for polar navigation. It also shows how to enhance the performance of the inertial system when aided by the Global Positioning System. It is an appropriate textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students in aeronautical and electrical engineering. It could also be used as a reference book for practitioners in the field.

Modern inertial sensors and systems cover more than five decades of continuous research and development involving various branches of science and engineering. Various technologies have emerged in an evolutionary manner surpassing the earlier ones in performance and reliability. The subject is still growing with proliferation in newer cost effec-tive applications, while its wider usage in aerospace systems continues. This book exposes the readers to the subject of inertial navigation, the inertial sensors and inertial systems in a unified manner while emphasizing the growth areas in emerging technologies such as micro-electromechanical inertial sensors, satellite navigation, satellite navigation integrated inertial navigation, hemispherical resonator gyro, vibrating beam accelerometer, interferometric fibre optic gyro, inertial sensor signal processing, redundant inertial systems and the quite recent emergence of cold atom interferometer based inertial sensors. The contents are imaginatively designed that will of interest to a wide spectrum of readers. The book has been written with utmost lucidity and clarity and explanations provided with a large number of illustrative figures. Besides being an ideal introduction to the principles of inertial sensors and systems for undergraduate and postgraduate students of aerospace engineering, the topics dealt with will also be of benefit to practising engineers and can assist the researchers to locate excellent references for research work. The authors have had three decades of design and application research experience in premier research institutions and have made use of their experience in giving a user-friendly shape to the book.

This book discusses state estimation and control procedures for a low-cost unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The authors consider the use of robust adaptive Kalman filter algorithms and demonstrate their advantages over the optimal Kalman filter in the context of the difficult and varied environments in which UAVs may be employed. Fault detection and isolation (FDI) and data fusion for UAV air-data systems are also investigated, and control algorithms, including the classical, optimal, and fuzzy controllers, are given for the UAV. The performance of different control methods is investigated and the results compared. State Estimation and Control of Low-Cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicles covers all the important issues for designing a guidance, navigation and control (GNC) system of a low-cost UAV. It proposes significant new approaches that can be exploited by GNC system designers in the future and also reviews the current literature. The state estimation, control and FDI methods are illustrated by examples and MATLAB® simulations. State Estimation and Control of Low-Cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicles will be of interest to both researchers in academia and professional engineers in the aerospace industry. Graduate students may also find it useful, and some sections are suitable for an undergraduate readership.
