The aircraft system contains several sensors for flight navigation. The magnetic sensor aids in the directional travel of the air vehicle. The data from the sensor interprets to give the heading of the aircraft or any navigational bodies. The acceleration sensor senses motion or tilting angles and also measures the velocity. Application of the MEMS sensor is used for the heading and acceleration sensing of a mobile vehicle unit. The global positioning system or GPS locates the position and time reference.
