I have almost finished the code for navigation calculations. I am finally working on PIC18F2685. The navigation algorithm uses floating point math which my C compiler supports. I am getting an accuracy of +-1deg for bearing calculation if compared to the Haversine method.

About Me:
Lets see... I've got a professinoal and educational background in aviation, having spent a number of years with the FAA doing air traffic control. I'm a licensed pilot (PPL). I additionally have a background in Mechanical Engineering, which is where my professional interests currently are. My interests range greatly, from designing and programming digital electronics (such as INS and other navigational systems), rocketry, projects around the house, etc.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I joined DIYDrones back in 2008 when I first become interested in UAV's. I've since done a lot on the electronics/programming side of things. I've since designed my own "autopilot" from scratch using an Arduino and some sensors (as partially documented on my site below).

I'm building my own inertial navigation system --- one that isn't super complex, doesn't involve fancy filters, yet will provide plenty of accuracy. It's all about purposeful building... designing and building for what it WILL do, not what it MIGHT or could possibly be able to do.



With that said, I'm using the…
