Once again I am privileged to work with Ohio University Prof. Frank vanGraas, in presenting tutorial sessions at the Institute of Navigation’s GNSS-17 conference. For 2017, as in several consecutive previous years, two sessions will cover integrated navigation with Kalman filtering.  Descriptions of the part 1 session and part 2 session are now available online.

By way of background: The first session is introductory.  Each attendee will be given a book with a development aimed at those learning inertial navigation and/or Kalman filtering for the first time.  Prior to the course, my free-to-members online tutorial is recommended.  Also my three-part matrix tutorial video will be made freely available to attendees.

Prof. vanGraas sponsored, and provided the flight data that enabled, the successful validation of 1-cm/sec RMS velocity vector accuracy obtained from 1-second sequential changes in carrier phase.  Those results for almost an hour in air are provided, with the algorithms used to obtain them, in a more recent book that is given to those attending the second session. attending the second session.
