The emergence of satellite technology has changed the lives of millions of people. In particular, GPS has brought an unprecedented level of accuracy to the field of geodesy. This text is a guide to the algorithms and mathematical principles that account for the success of GPS technology and replaces the authors' previous work, Linear Algebra, Geodesy, and GPS (1997). An initial discussion of the basic concepts, characteristics and technical aspects of different satellite systems is followed by the necessary mathematical content which is presented in a detailed and self-contained fashion. At the heart of the matter are the positioning algorithms on which GPS technology relies, the discussion of which will affirm the mathematical contents of the previous chapters. Numerous ready-to-use MATLAB codes are included for the reader. This comprehensive guide will be invaluable for engineers and academic researchers who wish to master the theory and practical application of GPS technology.

The only comprehensive guide to Kalman filtering and itsapplications to real-world GPS/INS problems Written by recognized authorities in the field, this book providesengineers, computer scientists, and others with a workingfamiliarity with the theory and contemporary applications of GlobalPositioning Systems (GPS), Inertial Navigational Systems, andKalman filters. Throughout, the focus is on solving real-worldproblems, with an emphasis on the effective use of state-of-the-artintegration techniques for those systems, especially theapplication of Kalman filtering. To that end, the authors explorethe various subtleties, common failures, and inherent limitationsof the theory as it applies to real-world situations, and providenumerous detailed application examples and practice problems,including GPS-aided INS, modeling of gyros and accelerometers, andWAAS and LAAS. Drawing upon their many years of experience with GPS, INS, and theKalman filter, the authors present numerous design andimplementation techniques not found in other professionalreferences, including original techniques for: * Representing the problem in a mathematical model * Analyzing the performance of the GPS sensor as a function ofmodel parameters * Implementing the mechanization equations in numerically stablealgorithms * Assessing computation requirements * Testing the validity of results * Monitoring GPS, INS, and Kalman filter performance inoperation In order to enhance comprehension of the subjects covered, theauthors have included software in MATLAB, demonstrating theworkings of the GPS, INS, and filter algorithms. In addition toshowing the Kalman filter in action, the software also demonstratesvarious practical aspects of finite word length arithmetic and theneed for alternative algorithms to preserve result accuracy. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all theproblems in the book is available from the Wiley editorialdepartment.

Space geodesy has evolved in the last twenty years into one of the most exciting disciplines in the earth sciences. This development is due to a large extent to the versatility of applications provided by the radio interferometric technique called Global Positioning System or GPS. Appropriately, Symposium 102: Global Positioning System: An Overview was held at the 125th Anniversary Meeting of the International Association of Geodesy in August, 1989. A broad review of GPS geodesy, achievements to date and the prospects for future study and application was presented. Papers included in this volume are grouped as follows: - Static and Geodynamic Positioning; - Orbit Determination Optimization and Design Dynamic; - Kinematic GPS/INS Radio Tracking Systems A useful reference for any researcher or student of space geodesy.

Over the past several years, cooperative control and optimization have increasingly played a larger and more important role in many aspects of military sciences, biology, communications, robotics, and decision making. At the same time, cooperative systems are notoriously difficult to model, analyze, and solve OCo while intuitively understood, they are not axiomatically defined in any commonly accepted manner. The works in this volume provide outstanding insights into this very complex area of research. They are the result of invited papers and selected presentations at the Fourth Annual Conference on Cooperative Control and Optimization held in Destin, Florida, November 2003. This book has been selected for coverage in: . OCo Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings- (ISTP- / ISI Proceedings).
