Quality Analysis of Platform Orientation Parameters for Airborne Laser Profiling Systems

  • Joachim Lindenberger
Conference paper


Autoregressive integrated (ARI-) processes are introduced for modelling the orientation parameters of airborne sensor platforms. The ARI-model comprises a filtering algorithm and achieves several quality criteria. Empirical results are presented from applications of GPS and INS during aircraft flights.
