Estimating inertial position and current in the midwater

Abstract

This paper describes a method for fusing an inertial position measurement from an Ultra-Short Baseline (USBL) sonar with a water-relative velocity measurement (from DVL, ACM, or other device) to improve knowledge of an underwater vehicle's inertial position. The goal is accuracy sufficient to enable closed-loop position control in the midwater. In this… (More)
