Navigation guidance and sensing technology is an important branch of automation dealing with the methods employed for the acquisition and sensing of the position, velocity, and attitude of the moving body, as well as the relevant environment and the characteristic information of the target. Based on this, the research of the guidance law, control strategy of the moving body and the realization manner is studied. As a fundamental, strategic, and advanced technology, navigation guidance and sensing technology is related to national security and national economy construction. Based on the subject workshops by NSFC (National Natural Science Foundation of China), in this paper we further summarize the recent development trend and research status of navigation guidance and sensing technology, with emphasis on the integrated design and interdisciplinary research on controlled object and task object, task environment, sensing method, implementation mechanism, and layout structure. Finally, we elaborate the key research areas and research directions of this subject from different aspects, such as common basic theory, key technology, and core technology.
