  • Publication number: 20210293970
    Abstract: Systems and methods for implementing single differences within a solution separation framework are provided. In certain embodiments, a method includes processing pseudorange measurements to determine a full navigation solution by applying a single difference between the pseudorange measurements. The method additionally includes performing innovation sequence monitoring. Also, the method includes processing a subset of the pseudorange measurements to determine a set of navigation sub-solutions by applying a single difference between the pseudorange measurements, wherein a result of the innovation sequence monitoring is applied to the set of navigation sub-solutions; and providing faults detection and computing protection levels of quantities of navigation information based on a full navigation solution estimate, navigation sub-solution estimates, dependence among the full navigation solution and the set of navigation sub-solutions, and probabilities of missed detection and false alert.

  • Patent number: 10760911
    Abstract: An integrity monitoring method for navigation systems with heterogeneous measurements is provided. Measurements from a plurality of different type navigation aiding sources are categorized by an information domain, an aiding class and an aiding section. The information domain is a category of at least one of estimated states and measurements that represent a same physical category. The aiding class is a category that uses a same physical method to acquire measurements. The aiding section is a category of measurements from the same aiding source. The measurements are organized into a plurality of measurement clusters based at least in part on measurement fault modes to be detected, measurement fault modes to be excluded, available computer resources and required performance. An integrity monitoring algorithm is applied to the measurement clusters to determine an integrity solution for all defined integrity monitoring classes.

  • Patent number: 10048074
    Abstract: An attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) for a vehicle comprises an IMU that generates inertial measurements, a heading source that generates heading measurements, an attitude filter in communication with the IMU, and a heading filter in communication with the heading source. The attitude filter receives inertial measurements from the IMU; computes an attitude estimation comprising attitude estimates and covariances for the attitude estimates; and outputs the attitude estimation. The heading filter receives the heading measurements, when available, from the heading source; receives the attitude estimation, comprising the attitude estimates and the covariances for the attitude estimates; computes a heading estimation comprising a heading mean estimate and a heading variance; and outputs the heading estimation.
