Hyatt Regency, Monterey, CA

Magnetic navigation (MagNav) which uses Earth anomalies or other environmental magnetic sources is quickly becoming a reliable alternative navigation signal that can provide a backup in situations in which other navigation techniques are unavailable or unreliable. This workshop will cover the important implementation aspects of MagNav including the availability of magnetic maps, vehicle magnetic calibration, and navigation filter techniques.
