Small UAV performance is limited by the sensors and software filters used in the navigational systems. Several solutions of various complexity and cost exist, however no ready-made solutions exist for a high-accuracy, low-cost UAV system. Presented is the design (low-level system as well as high-level extended Kalman filter) for a specifically designed small-UAV navigation platform, AggieNav.
