Module Description

The current module description is available via MOSES as well as on the information page of Faculty V for the master's programme in Aerospace Engineering.

Course Content


  • Review of some basic nav systems: DME, VOR, GNSS
  • Definition of navigation performance parameters: accuracy, integrity, availability and continuity
  • Required navigation performance and performance based operation for manned and unmanned aircraft
  • Benefits of integrated navigation and sensor fusion
  • Basics of estimation theory in the context of navigation
  • Linear, Linearized, and Extended Kalman filters (KF, LKF, EKF) and its performance analysis
  • Integration mechanizations: DME/DME, DME/INS, GNSS/INS
  • Unscented Kalman filter (UKF) and particle filters (PF)
  • Laser-based navigation and laser-scan matching
  • Visual odometer (VO) and Visual inertial odometer (VIO)
  • SLAM, SLAM using EKF and PF, graph-based SLAM
  • Occupancy grids


  • Calculate positions using multiple navigation sensors with KF and EKF: DME/INS, GNSS/INS
  • Use laser scanners data to estimate change in position
  • Integrated laser scanners data with inertial measurements
  • Estimate change in position using monocular cameras
  • Compute the trajectory and generate a map of the environment at the same time


All teaching materials are offered via the ISIS platform.
