Navigation systems have vital importance both in military and civil applications. But, the error associated with these systems reduces the efficiency of the system. Kalman filter is a tool that is commonly used to decrease these errors. Recently, the modified wave estimator (MWE) has been proposed as an alternative to Kalman filter for navigation systems. Unlike Kalman filter, the MWE defines the process noise as deterministic means. Both estimators have advantages and disadvantages with

Both estimators try to attempt to make use of advantages of each estimator in the best way possible. Performance of the MWE, Kalman filter, the fused estimator and adaptive MWE are compared through a navigation simulation and results are discussed.
