Aided Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) systems are commonly implemented in land vehicles for a variety of applications. Several methods have been reported in the literature for evaluating aided INS performance. Yet, the INS error-state-model dependency on time and trajectory implies that no closed-form solutions exist for such evaluation. In this paper, we derive analytical solutions to evaluate the fusion performance. We show that the derived analytical solutions manage to predict the error covariance behavior of the full aided INS error model. These solutions bring insight into the effect of the various parameters involved in the fusion of the INS and an aiding sensor.
