Radar Altimeter, Kalman Filter The fault tolerant integrated navigation system, consisting of radar and inertial altimeters, is presented. The integration is achieved by using an adaptive Kalman filter with the filter gain correction. In the open loop system, the inertial altimeter is the main source of information, and radar altimeter provides discrete aiding data to support the estimations. The performance of the proposed fault tolerant integrated radar/inertial altimeter in case of abrupt faults is examined.
