Guidance, Navigation and Control: Theory and Applications

Course Description

Get some guidance and gain some control—in theory, that is! The Guidance, Navigation and Control: Theory and Applications course covers the principles of navigation by inertial, celestial, and radio (including GPS) methods, as well as the principles of guidance and control of 6-DOF motion, the characteristics and noise models of sensors, and the dynamic behavior of controlled and guided systems.
