Title: The development of an integrated GPS/INS/sonar navigation system for autonomous underwater vehicle navigation
Author: Bennamoun, M; Boashash, B; Faruqi, F; Dunbar, M
Abstract: The need to successfully navigate in an underwater environment is rapidly becoming an important concern in the 1990's. This paper presents the development of an integrated navigation system for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) using GPS, INS and sonar. This paper discusses the existing problems with sub-sea navigation, the motivation for an integrated system, the mathematical derivation for an integrated GPS/INS/sonar system, and the results obtained from extensive testing.
Description: This paper presents a sonar navigation system suitable for underwater navigation. (The most recent upgrade of the original software package that calculates Time-Frequency Distributions and Instantaneous Frequency estimators can be downloaded from the web site: www.time-frequency.net. This was the first software developed in the field, and it was first released publicly in 1987 at the 1st ISSPA conference held in Brisbane, Australia., and then continuously updated). A companion is the comprehensive book on Time-Frequency Signal Analysis and Processing available at: http://www.elsevier.com/locate/isbn/0080443354
