Abstract : The purpose of this report is to document a mathematical model that has been used to evaluate the potential life cycle costs of inertial navigation systems. The model has been previously published; however, because of sensitive data, it had a limited distribution. This report includes deficitions of all input and output parameters, explanations of algorithms for the model, a sample run using fictitious data and a program listing which includes a sensitivity study.
