Default A Long Look at Advanced Multisensor Navigation and Positioning

A Long Look at Advanced Multisensor Navigation and Positioning
http://gpsworld.com/a-long-look-at-a...d-positioning/


A modern-day fable related by Steven Covey tells of a civil engineer
leading a crew engaged in building a road through a dense jungle.
Each day the engineer’s adept management, the crew’s motivation and
energy, and the high-tech equipment at their disposal pushed the new
road well beyond scheduled targets. Midway through the allotted
month, the engineer decided to climb to the top of a tree to see if
he could get a distant glimpse of the destination. After a few
minutes, he called down to his crew, “Wrong forest!”

This comes to mind as we consider the well-known fact that the next
generation of navigation and positioning systems must provide greater
accuracy and reliability in a range of challenging environments, to
meet the needs of a variety of mission-critical applications.
