Continuing on the theme of integrating GNSS with other sensors for performance
enhancement, Chapter 8 explores the use of LADAR along with INS and terrain
maps for this purpose. Chapter 8 provides a historical overview of this integration
scheme and then discusses the architecture used for integrating GNSS, LADAR,
INS, and terrain maps. The chapter culminates in the presentation of test results
from a flight test campaign performed to validate the functionality and performance
of such systems.
