Item description for Introduction to Modern Navigation Systems by Esmat Bekir...
The emerging technology of very inexpensive inertial sensors is available for navigation as never before. The book lays the analytical foundation for understanding and implementing the navigation equations. It starts by demystifying the central theme of the frame rotation using such algorithms as the quaternions, the rotation vector and the Euler angles. After developing navigation equations, the book introduces the computational issues and discusses the physical aspects that are tied to implementing these equations. The book then explains alignment techniques. Introduction to Modern Navigation Systems offers an efficient algorithm for polar navigation. It also shows how to enhance the performance of the inertial system when aided by the Global Positioning System. It is an appropriate textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students in aeronautical and electrical engineering. It could also be used as a reference book for practitioners in the field.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Modern Navigation Systems?
Simple, basic, comprehensive. Great intro to nav. Dec 13, 2009
Bekir has captured all of the essential information for an introduction to modern navigation systems for engineers. Theory, equations and modeling and simulation. He is sparse on words and heavy on equations (which I like!). If you need to come up to speed fast on modern nav or if you need a refresher the book is worth every penny.
