Summary

Summary

An indispensable resource for all those who design, build, manage,and operate electronic navigation systems

Avionics Navigation Systems, Second Edition, is a complete guide tothe art and science of modern electronic navigation, focusing onaircraft. It covers electronic navigation systems in civil andmilitary aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, andmanned spacecraft. It has been thoroughly updated and expanded toinclude all of the major advances that have occurred since thepublication of the classic first edition. It covers the entirefield from basic navigation principles, equations, andstate-of-the-art hardware to emerging technologies. Each chapter isdevoted to a different system or technology and provides detailedinformation about its functions, design characteristics, equipmentconfigurations, performance limitations, and directions for thefuture. You'll find everything you need to know about:
*

Traditional ground-based radio navigation
*

Satellite systems: GPS, GLONASS, and their augmentations
*

New inertial systems, including optical rate sensors,micromechanical accelerometers, and high-accuracy stellar-inertialnavigators Instrument Landing System and its successors
*

Integrated communication-navigation systems used onbattlefields
*

Airborne mapping, Doppler, and multimode radars
*

Terrain matching
*

Special needs of military aircraft
*

And much more
