Abstract : This memo discussed the effect of location and orientation biases of the sensors in obtaining a location estimate (fix) from LOB data. This fix is computed via the Perpendicular Method algorithm. This study, while treating both correlated and uncorrelated biases, is only an initial assessment of the problem. Keywords: Location error; North Orientation error; Perpendicular fixing algorithm; Variance; Covariance; Independence; Modeling.
