In this study, the effect of acceleration matching according to sensor specifications in rapid transfer alignment is analysed. In general, the velocity and attitude information of the Master Inertial Navigation System (MINS) is used for transfer alignment. MINS angular velocity information is used to improve the alignment speed in shipboard transfer alignment. Acceleration matching, on the other hand, is generally considered an impractical option for transfer alignment. However, in the case of shipboard transfer alignment, acceleration matching is thought to be effective. In order to analyse the performance of acceleration matching, a performance index is defined and the efficiency of acceleration matching is analysed according to various sensor specifications and simulation environments. Based on the analysis of the estimated performance according to the simulation results, it is confirmed that acceleration matching in rapid transfer alignment is valid.
