In this study, Integrated Air Data - Doppler Navigation System is developed and presented. Air Data System and Doppler Radar have different advantages and disadvantages in applications in flight control and navigation systems. The reason of this integration is to achieve the best combination of the features and eliminate the disadvantages of these systems. As a consequence of this integration via Kalman filtering, an integrated navigation system with high accuracy of airvehicle velocity and position and with high measurement frequency is attained. On basis of this integrated system, the possibility to estimate accurate and real time inflight wind speed is explained.
