The Earth’s crustal magnetic field is a powerful tool for navigation as an alternative to GPS. MagNav.jl is an open-source Julia package containing algorithms for both aeromagnetic compensation and navigation. Alongside baseline algorithms, such as Tolles-Lawson, this package enables multiple scientific machine learning approaches for compensation. This talk will cover some of these techniques and advanced use cases for MagNav.jl in navigation.
