Abstract
The Marine Integrated Navigation System (MINS) described in this paper was developed at the Defence Research Establishment Ottawa (DREO) to enhance the navigation accuracy, mission reliability and position reporting efficiency of the Canadian Maritime Forces. The MINS is a microprocessor controlled, optimally integrated, multi-sensor navigation system, based on a 14-state Kalman Filter and several special purpose routines. The Kalman Filter automatically weights and combines all sensor data to produce statistically optimal estimates of the ship's position and velocity. The special purpose routines were designed to perform various types of measurement error detection, to correct for certain sensor errors and to generate Omega and Loran-C signal propagation correction.
