Keywords: Navigation Software, Simulation, Estimation, Analysis. Post-processing, Aided Inertial Navigation System, Kalman Filtering, Optimal Smoothing

Abstract: The ambition of getting one common tool for a great variety of navigation tasks was the background for the development of NavLab (Navigation Laboratory). The main emphasis during the development has been a solid theoretical foundation with a stringent mathematical representation to ensure that statistical optimality is maintained throughout the entire system_ NavLab is implemented in Matlab. and consists of a simulator and an estimator.
