In recent years, advances in technology have led towards the development of cheap High Accuracy Inertial Navigation Systems (HAINS). However, testing such systems requires the use of dedicated, expensive test ranges which are usually* within military control, for example, Holloman Economical testing of INS is usually and velocity against ground survey points, or by comparing position in flight against ground VOR references. Both techniques have the limitation of providing accuracy tests only at discrete locations. Also, VOR accuracies are normally stated to 0.1 nm which is not sufficient to determine the characteristics of HAINS.
