Professor Enge's research focuses on the design of navigation systems that satisfy stringent requirements with respect to security, accuracy, integrity (truthfulness), time availability, and continuity. To provide high integrity, these navigation systems must detect and flag any faults (or natural conditions) that may cause large position errors. To simultaneously provide high time availability, the system must automatically compensate for any such faults. These days, such navigation systems are usually based on the Global Positioning System (GPS) with substantive augmentation. Applications of current interest include the landing of airplanes and harbor navigation.
