We are investigating new ways of solving the multi-rate, asynchronous filtering problems in a frequency-like framework that is compatible with that used for control systems design and with the types of sensor specifications that are usually available from the manufacturers. Furthermore, we are interested in developing new algorithms that lift the usual assumption on the separation of the time scales associated with unmanned air vehicle sensor processing (navigation), vehicle dynamics (control), and kinematics (guidance).
