Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Demonstrate validity of the wander azimuth mechanization in the polar region. Verify that there were no singularities in the navigational equations and mechanizations. Validate that an inertial navigation system could be successfully ground aligned at very high latitudes without degrading navigational performance. Verify the grid heading option mechanization. Verify the “inertialation” techniques that are available from the steering signals of the InerGal Navigation System.
