Initial Alignment Algorithm for the SDINS Using an Attitude Determination GPS Receiver

자세 측정용 GPS 수신기를 이용한 SDINS의 초기정렬 알고리즘

  • Published : 2002.03.01


Since the stationary alignment process of the SDINS is not completely observable, some furls of the aided alignment have been applied. The purpose of this paper is to propose a new initial alignment algorithm, which utilizes the attitude output from the AGPS(Attitude Determination GPS) receiver and to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed algorithm with several experimental results. A Kalman filter is designed for utilizing the attitude output as well as the zero velocity information. Also analyzed is the observability of the SDINS error model. To show the feasibility of the proposed scheme, we implement an alignment system where HG1700AE IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) from Honeywell and an AGPS receiver designed at Chungnam National University are used. Test trials are done to evaluate the performance of the proposed alignment scheme. The proposed algorithm provides as good initial alignment performance as a high accurate navigation system, MAPS(Modular Azimuth Positioning System) INS.
