Updated: 3 June 2013
NAMEmbauvnavusbl - Adjusts inertial navigation of a submerged platform/vehicle to be consistent with more accurate but less precise surface tracking (USBL) navigation.
SYNOPSISmbauvnavusbl -Iinavfile [-L -Oonavfile -Uusblfile-V -H ]
DESCRIPTIONMBauvnavusbl reads a primary navigation file (usually from a submerged platform swath survey) and also reads secondary navigation (e.g. USBL fixes). The program calculates position offsets between the raw survey navigation and the secondary navigation every 3600 seconds (10 minutes), and then linearly interpolates and applies this adjustment vector for each primary navigation position.
The inertial navigation is read in format 166 and the USBL navigation is read from format 165 files. The adjusted navigation is output in format 166.
