Error Analysis of the Navigation System with Asynchronous Gyros

  • Published : 2001.10.01


The asynchronous gyro outputs in the 3-axis navigation system are defined as each of gyros has its own output frequency. In this case, the navigation system has gyro outputs concurrently with the sensor mechanical frequency instead of the attitude frequency. So, there is an asynchronous error between gyro outputs and attitude calculation. In this paper, we analyze the gyro output error caused by the asynchronous gyro and present the high speed sampling technique and the extrapolation and interpolation of gyro outputs for synchronizing the gyro outputs.
