Who Should Attend
People with engineering and technology backgrounds who are interested in learning how signals from satellites that are over 20,000km away can pinpoint almost anyone, any vehicle on earth, and how to use such signals to locate and navigate UAVs. 

Course Description
Satellite Navigation, and in particular, the Global Positioning System (GPS) is a critical component in avionics, and has been widely used in both ground and aerial vehicles. The discipline is in a period of flux. The U.S. GPS and the Russian GLONASS are being joined by the European Galileo and the Chinese BeiDou systems. Furthermore, the prospect of a commercial UAV industry in the near future will create significant new engineering opportunities in designing and building avionics systems involving GPS. In this course, participants will learn advanced satellite navigation technologies with applications in UAV flight and control systems.

Learning Outcomes 

Upon completion of the course, students will have learned theory and written code to compute an accurate estimate of the receiver’s location based upon the signals broadcast by the GPS constellation of satellites and other sensors, such as inertial measurement units and vision sensors that are commonly used in UAVs.  To reach this goal, students will learn about the basics of navigation, numerical methods to calculate a navigation solution, receiver analysis, sensor fusion algorithms, error analysis and mitigation. 

Computer and/or Software Requirements

Participants should bring a laptop computer.

Mon. & Tues. 8:30-4:30; Wed. 8:30am-12:00pm
