alignment time

alignment time

The minimum time taken by an inertial navigation system (INS) to align precisely with local horizontal and vertical azimuth. Normally, an aircraft or air vehicle should not move or takeoff before the system is aligned, as there would be very large errors in heading indications. However, some systems do permit shorter alignment periods with some acceptable inaccuracies.
