For this section participants will join the IEEE/ION PLANS tutorial program. Magnetic-Aided Inertial Navigation (MagNav) uses the magnetic anomaly of the Earth’s crust as a map to provide corrections to an inertial navigation system. This tutorial covers the essentials required for MagNav, including the required sensor technology, magnetic anomaly maps for navigation, as well as removal of the magnetic fields generated by vehicles and the techniques to incorporate magnetic measurements into an inertial navigator.

Dr. Aaron Nielsen is a research assistant professor at the Air Force Institute of Technology. He received a PhD in Physics from the University of Maryland focused on magnetic microscopy of superconductors and then worked in industry with a focus on airborne magnetics
