An airborne distributed position and orientation system (POS) is high-precision measurement equipment that can accurately provide multinode time-spatial reference for novel remote sensing system as multitask imaging sensors and array antenna synthetic aperture radar. However, it is difficult for multisensor to precisely acquire information at the same moment and result in data fusion error. Thus, the measurement precision is severely degraded. To solve the problem, a multisensor time synchronization error modeling and compensation method is proposed. Based on the component and operation principles of distributed POS, the time synchronization mechanism is analyzed. Multisensor time synchronization error models that include time delay error, random error, and time-varying error are established. A time synchronization error compensation method of the distributed POS is proposed. The experiment results show that the proposed method can accurately calibrate and compensate for the time synchronization error, and improve the measurement precision of the distributed POS. It verified the validity of the proposed method.
