The article presents a comparison of two methods of fusion of dead reckoning position with that from a positioning system. These are the least squares method and the Kalman filter. In both methods the minimization of the sum of squared measurement deviations is the optimization criterion. Both methods of navigation position parameter measurements fusion are illustrated using the data recorded during actual sea trials. With the same probabilistic model of dead reckoning navigation, the fusion of DR results with positioning data gives similar outcome.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.11.04.16}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Positioning System, Kalman Filter, Navigational Method, Navigational Methods Development, Dead Reckoning (DR), Navigation Data, Least Squares, Dead Reckoning Navigation} }
