The development of strap-down inertial navigation system is becoming more and more mature. This paper proposes a design scheme of cheap inertial navigation system for satellite earth station based on MEMS. This article mainly expounds the principles and characteristics of strap-down inertial navigation, geomagnetic orientation, and micro-electromechanical systems. After considering their respective advantages, a filtering algorithm based on Kalman filtering is designed on this basis. This navigation system is combined to form a new combined system. Finally, the feasibility of the system is proved through experiments, which verifies the excellent characteristics and practical value of the system.
