Inertial Navigation System (INS) Toolbox

Simulation and analysis software


  • Nonlinear 6DOF flight profile generator
  • Land vehicle trajectory generator
  • Raw measurement generators (delta-V and delta-theta)
  • Error source emulation (biases, scale factors, noise)
  • Position, velocity, and attitude updating algorithms
  • Extensive user manual with 30 example programs


Simulation results for a transoceanic flight.

The Inertial Navigation System (INS) Toolbox was designed for total system simulation and analysis. The toolbox provides a nonlinear six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) flight profile and trajectory generator and a land vehicle trajectory generator, as well as a simple point-mass model. The toolbox provides MATLAB® functions to emulate inertial system measurements along with error sources as well as position, velocity, and attitude updating algorithms.

Users include scientists, engineers, university educators, and students who need to simulate and analyze inertial navigation systems. The INS Toolbox is fully compatible with GPSoft's Satellite Navigation (SatNav) Toolbox, enabling users to simulate and analyze integrated GPS and INS applications.
