  author={Jacob L. Campbell and Maarten Uijt de Haag and Frank van Graas},
This dissertation explores the use of an Airborne Laser Scanner (ALS) for various types of aircraft Terrain-Referenced Navigation (TRN) techniques. Using the methods explored, an ALS-based TERRain Aided Inertial Navigator (TERRAIN) was developed, flight tested, and shown capable of providing meter-level positioning accuracy in real-time. The ALS-based TRN techniques discussed are constrained to the information found in the terrain shape domain. The techniques used and position solution… CONTINUE READING
