Abstract: High speed Marine vehicles such as Surface Effect Ships impose several unique constraints on navigation system design. Particularly significant is the current lack of a reliable and accurate velocity sensor during high speed cruise operation. This paper describes the accuracy performance of several mixed inertial navigation systems which do not involve the use of a velocity sensor. Specifically considered are NAVSAT-INERTIAL, OMEGA-INERTIAL, and NAVSAT-OMEGA-INERTIAL systems. The accuracy performance information which is presented presumes the use of optimal (Kalman) processing of the available position data.
