Abstract
The paper describes the results of recent design and development analysis of a Marine Integrated Navigation System, which will optimally and optionally combine the navigation sensor information to provide a continuous estimate of ship position, speed and various other parameters of interest. Several integration filters based on modern estimation techniques were designed to integrate a dead reckoning system, a Loran C and an Omega receiver. Extensive simulation and sensitivity analysis results are presented to compare the performance of these filters against that of the dead reckoning and conventional reset approaches. The improvement in position accuracy was seen to persist under all conditions tested. The robustness and stability of the integration scheme developed are some of the essential characteristics that can help to ensure the success of naval operations in a broad range of maritime environments.
