Synthetic Air Data Systems are in its essence airspeed estimation algorithms. Commonly, estimation algorithms are built based on measurements from which airspeed can be calculated. This paper presents simulations using F16 model performing simple maneuvers using some proposed algorithms that use inertial sensors and GPS. The possibility to use an angle-of-attack and/or temperature probes is also discussed. We also discuss practical aspects regarding airspeed, altitude and temperature estimations.
