Abstract
This report contains descriptions of the strapdown navigator implemented for the MEMS/GPS project. A strapdown navigator is an algorithm used to integrate the outputs of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to produce position, velocity and attitude navigation information. The MEMS IMUs used for MEMS/GPS have errors that are much larger than those found in conventional IMUs, giving rise to the need for error mitigation techniques. Details of the strapdown navigator algorithm, as well as development of the closed loop, Kalman filter error control are included.
