Navigation systems engineering is a red-hot area. More and more technical professionals are entering the field and looking for practical, up-to-date engineering know-how. This newly revised and expanded edition of the popular "Artech House book Principles of GNSS, Inertial, and Multisensor Integrated Navigation Systems" answers the call, offering current and comprehensive introduction to systems operation and an in-depth treatment of architecture, design, and component integration. The second edition offers a wealth of added and updated material, including a brand new chapter on the principles of radio positioning and a chapter devoted to important applications in the field. DVD Included! It features nine appendices, interactive worked examples, basic GNSS and INS Matlab[registered] simulation software, and problems and exercises to help readers master the material. It is suitable for navigation systems designers, engineers, and researchers, as well as graduate students and academic researchers.
