Rapid Transfer Alignment of SINS with Measurement Packet Dropping based on a Novel Suboptimal Estimator
Transfer alignment (TA) is an important step for strapdown inertial navigation system (SINS) starting from a moving base, which utilises the information proposed from the higher accurate and well performed master inertial navigation system. But the information is often delayed or even lost in real application, which will seriously affect the accuracy of TA. This paper models the stochastic measurement packet dropping as an independent identically distributed (IID) Bernoulli random process, and introduces it into the measurement equation of rapid TA, and the influence of measurement packet dropping is analysed. Then, it presents a suboptimal estimator for the estimation of the misalignment in TA considering the random arrival of the measurement packet. Simulation has been done for the performance comparison about the suboptimal estimator, standard Kalman filter and minimum mean squared estimator. The results show that the suboptimal estimator has better performance, which can achieve the best TA accuracy.
