If a body is moving inertially or is at rest, then the action of some other body determined it to one or the other state and only then does the body, if left to itself, persevere at rest or in uniform rectilinear motion.

Decreasing the cost of near-precision strike weapons--JDAMS, for example--adding low cost ubiquitous GPS to inertially guided "dumb" bombs with steerable tail fins to achieve near-precision accuracy versus optical or laser guided weapons that are spoofed by adverse weather or common battlefield obscurants, such as burning oil.
If internal models are available in the interpretation process for predicting future states (velocity, position, and orientation components) based on inertial measurements, two essential information cross-feed branches become possible: (1) Own body pose need not be derived from vision but can be predicted from the actual state and inertially measured data (including the effects of perturbations) and (2) slow drift components, occurring when only inertial data are used for state prediction, can be compensated for by visual observation of stationary objects far away in the outside world.
