Airborne Magnetic Navigation Enhanced with Neural Networks

07/29/2021, 5:20 PM5:30 PM UTC


Using the earth’s magnetic field for navigation of aircraft has shown promise as a viable alternative to GPS. An airborne magnetic navigation system collects magnetic field data and uses predetermined magnetic maps to estimate location. A challenge arises when the measured data contains magnetic signals from both the (desired) earth field and (undesired) aircraft field. This work explores several approaches for obtaining a clean magnetic signal that is usable for navigation.
