Description: What is meant by ‘‘navigation’’?How do global navigation satellite systems (GNSS),
such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), work? What is an inertial navigation
system (INS)? This introductory chapter presents the basic concepts of navigation
technology and provides a qualitative overview of the material covered in the body
of the book. It introduces and compares the main navigation technologies and puts
contemporary navigation techniques in a historical context.
Section 1.1 defines the concept of navigation and describes the two fundamental
techniques that most navigation systems are based on: position fixing and dead
reckoning. Section 1.2 provides a basic description of inertial navigation and discusses
its pros and cons. Section 1.3 introduces radio navigation, covering both
satellite and terrestrial systems. Section 1.4 discusses feature-matching techniques,
such as terrain-referenced navigation (TRN). Finally, Section 1.5 discusses how
different navigation technologies may be combined to produce the complete navigation
