SPEAKER  George T. Schmidt
麻省理工大学,American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics 主编 George T. Schmidt has been Editor-in-Chief of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics since 1996. He is an industry consultant in guidance, navigation, and control and is currently Director of the NATO Systems and Electronics Technology Panel, Lecture Series on Low Cost Navigation Sensors and Integration Technology. He is an AIAA Fellow, a Life Fellow of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and he is an elected member of the Russian Federation, Academy of Navigation and Motion Control. He is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society. He has also been a Lecturer in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and is a consultant to the US Air Force Scientific Advisory Board.. Until 2007, he was the Director of Education at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Prior to that position he was the Leader of the Guidance and Navigation Division and Director of the Draper Guidance Technology Center. His major technical activities have been in guidance and navigation system design for missiles, aircraft, and manned spacecraft; Kalman filtering applications; integration and relative target techniques for high-resolution synthetic aperture radars; satellite navigation systems; and inertial sensors. He has served the NATO Research and Technology Organization (formerly AGARD) in many positions, including as a U.S. member of the Guidance and Control Panel. He has received several awards including the AIAA International Cooperation Award in 2001 and the NATO Research and Technology Organization’s highest technical award, the von Kármán Medal in 2005. He is author or contributing author of more than 80 technical papers, reports, encyclopedia articles, and books. He received his S.B. and S.M. degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT and his Sc.D. in Instrumentation from MIT.

ADDRESS  新主楼第二报告厅 Reporting Hall 2, Conference Center of New Main Building


This presentation gives a roadmap for the development of inertial sensors, the Global Positioning System (GPS), and integrated inertial navigation system (INS)/GPS technology.  This roadmap will lead to better than 1-m accuracy, low-cost, moving platform navigation in the near future. Such accuracy will enable military and civilian applications which were previously unthought-of a few years ago.  After a historical perspective, a vision of the inertial sensor instrument field and inertial systems for the future is given.   Accuracy and other planned improvements for GPS are explained.  The trend from loosely-coupled to tightly-coupled INS/GPS systems to deeply-integrated INS/GPS is described, and the synergistic benefits are explored.  Some examples of the effects of GPS interference and jamming are illustrated.  Expected technology improvements to system robustness are also described.  Applications that will be made possible by this new technology include personal navigation systems, robotic navigation, and autonomous systems with unprecedented low-cost and accuracy.
