Navigation architecture for hypersonic aircraft
Department of Industrial Engineering (DII) – Aerospace Division – University of Naples “Federico II”,
This paper aims at presenting an integrated navigation algorithm designed for estimating the navigation state of the STRATOFLY vehicle (LAPCAT–MR3). STRATOFLY project has been funded by the European Commission, under the framework of Horizon 2020 plan, with the aim of assessing the potential of high–speed transport vehicle. The complex interaction between elements of an air-breathing hypersonic vehicle represents a new paradigm in aircraft design. In particular, one of the needs for early GNC analysis in the case of LAPCAT–MR3 vehicle is the assessment of navigation performance over the reference trajectory. The navigation algorithm presented in this paper is based on an augmented state EKF data fusion algorithm exploiting inertial measurements provided by gyroscopes and accelerometers, heading estimates provided by a magnetometer and satellite-based measurements provided by a spaceborne GNSS receiver, considering GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO constellations.
