A Review of NASA's 'Atmospheric Effects of Stratospheric Aircraft' Project

The NRC Panel at the Atmospheric results of Aviation (PAEAN) used to be demonstrated to supply assistance to NASA's Atmospheric results of Aviation software (AEAP) by way of comparing the appropriateness of the program's examine plan, appraising the project-sponsored effects relative to the present country of medical wisdom, settling on key medical uncertainties, and suggesting examine actions more likely to decrease these uncertainties.

On the other hand, to avoid ambiguity in space navigation applications, there is need of further geometric constraints or at least another satellite range. 2 Reference Coordinate Systems To perform user position computation by means of satellite ranging, as described earlier, it is necessary to adopt a common reference coordinate system to represent both user and satellite positions. 1 The ECI Coordinate System Earth‐Centered Inertial (ECI) systems are right‐handed orthogonal coordinate systems (with x, y, z axes) that do not rotate with respect to the fixed stars and have their origin fixed at the Earth’s center of mass.

The most challenging aspect of initialization lies in the determination of the body‐to‐nav DCM. This amounts to the determination of the local level plane (from which roll and pitch are determined) and the determination of the direction of north (from which yaw or heading is determined). Conceptually, the process of attitude determination is most easily understood in the ­context of a gimbaled INS. For a stationary vehicle, the only force sensed by the accelerometers is the force of gravity and, to first order, the gravity vector lies along the local vertical.

The result of this program is an all‐weather radio‐navigation system that allows any user equipped with a GPS receiver to determine its 3D position, velocity, and time (PVT) information anywhere on the surface of the Earth and in the air. GPS is a ranging system, which means that it provides user‐to‐satellite range measurements together with satellite position‐related data, to be processed by the user equipment to compute four‐dimensional navigation solutions (user position and time) in a dynamic environment.
