INS : State of the art Yves PATUREL

2 INS : noise on the sensors For inertial sensors, one typical way of measuring noise is the draw the Allan variance : Log sensor data at high frequency for a long period of time Average data over 2 samples, compute standard deviation of all averages Average data over 10 samples, compute standard deviation of all averages Average data over 50 samples, compute standard deviation of all averages … Draw on a log-log scale, the standard deviation versus averaging time

6 Allan variance Quantification Angular random walk : Averaging or integrating time aslong as it is smaller than the time at which flicker noise is reached will improve bias measurement The smallest the noise, theshortest is the time to reach some bias measurement level Flicker noise Provide measurement of bias instability and time over which instability occurs

7 Position accuracy along trajectory Position aiding with GNSS for airborne applications Case of large bank angles Case of satellite masking

8
8 Position aiding over trajectory For applications that require the best positioning performance, PPK GPS is today the most accurate way for INS aiding : Accuracy is unrivalled (a few centimeters) But GNSNS require that at least satellites are visible For airborne applications, this is the case most of the time except when turning with large bank angles or when horizon masking occurs :

9
9 High grade IMU, so that accuracy is maintained during this occasions, but the accuracy cannot be maintained for long period of time Tight coupling between INS and GNSS : GNSS accuracy is lost « later », because PPK accuracy can be maintained longer while IMU provides aiding data to GNSS : fixed ambiguity solution is maintained longer with less visible satellites, Better GNSS solution monitoring when less satellite redundancy This is even improved when this tight coupling is done in forward and backward (post processing) Obviously, the best is when you can combine both high grade IMU and tight coupling

10 Point-of-interests: “La grille royale”: confidence intervals Higher fix availability

11
11 Point-of-interests: “Rue Montardat” Higher precision

12
12 Optimal use of flight time : alignment time Alignment time includes attitude and heading alignment : Attitude is quite fast to align, providing that accelerometer biases are stable enough over time Heading alignment is longer: Heading error estimation requires changes of velocity vector Heading error must be stable, therefore should not increase with time, due to gyro drift (gyro bias) Converging time is shorter when heading is already quite accurately computing wit gyrocompassing

13
13 Long legs trajectory Heading errors cannot be estimated during long straight legs :

14
14 Long legs trajectory Heading error will grow at the speed of the uncompensated gyro bias : Bias must be well estimated Bias must be stable (back to the Allan variance curve).

15
15 Long legs trajectory Velocity does not change, so acceleration is zero Accelerometers measurements are zero When you integrate zeo, orientation of zero vector does not matter !! In order to make heading error observable, it is necessary to have non zero acceleration : Increase velocity, Reduce velocity Turn

16
16 End of alignment Start

17
17 Attitude accuracy along trajectory On long straight legs, roll error and accelerometer bias cannot be separated Accelerometer bias must be as stable as possible Roll error must be as stable as possible (no gyro drift)

18
18 How to mount IMU and rest of system ? IMU and other sensors must be mounted as rigidly as possible one wrt the other, so that IMU measures exactly the orientation of the sensors They must be close together, so that there is no torsion between IMU and sensors It is better when there is no vibration isolators “between IMU and sensors

19
19 How to mount IMU and rest of system ? Why isolators ? Some inertial sensors are sensitive to vibration : their characteristics may vary with vibrations This is the case with most of accelerometers (levels of sensitivity may vary from one technology to the other) Very often isolators are included inside the IMU box and cannot be removed
