- GPS Speed Measurement, just like position measurement, is a very widely-applied field. GPS can not only determine the real-time location of carriers in motion, but also determine the instantaneous speed of carriers . Therefore, at present, GPS speed measurement is also very widely applied. In view of the disadvantage that the present common filtering algorithm cannot track targets precisely and efficiently, a finite-difference extended Kalman filter (FDEKF) algorithm is presented to be used in GPS tracking in the reentry stage. This algorithm obtains priori and posteriori error covariance matrices using finite-difference operation, avoids nonlinear function derivation operation and the calculation of Jacobian matrix and Hessian matrix, reduces difficulty in calculation, enlarges the range of application and enhances the convergence of filtering process. The filtering accuracy is significantly improved.
