Python for Engineering and Science

This post kicks off a series about software. I present a set of open-source Python-based tools which enable powerful functionality in computation, programming, and visualization. Before starting I think it is important to address one question: How is this relevant to navigation systems? Indirectly. Guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) algorithms…
