Chapter 8, Integrated LADAR, INS and GNSS

By Jacob Campbell and Maarten Uijt de Haag

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.
