Abstract

This work presents a method for generating position, attitude, and velocity states for an aircraft following a smoothed reference trajectory. The method also generates accelerometer and gyro measurements consistent with the aircraft states. This work describes three corner smoothing algorithms for generating a smoothed reference trajectory from a series waypoints that accounts for limitations in the physical system. The smoothed reference trajectory, and curvilinear motion theory are used to generate the lower-order states. A coordinated turn maneuver is then applied to generate accelerometer and gyro measurement estimates.
