Visual-INS Using a Human Operator and Converted Measurements

Meir Pachter, Turner J. Montgomery
2017 IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems  
A method for pilot-assisted Inertial Navigation System (INS) aiding is explored in which the pilot identifies and tracks a ground feature of unknown position over a short measurement epoch using an Electro-Optical (E/O) sensor. One then refers to Visual-INS. In contrast to current research trends, a human operator is entrusted with visually tracking the ground feature. In addition, a less conventional measurement linearization technique is applied to
