Abstract:

"The GPS/IMU Munitions Tracker (GIMT) is a miniature, low cost device that provides time, space, and position information (TSPI) for weapons released from aircraft. It can be repackaged either in a convenient cubic shape for internal mounting, or with alow profile for an aerodynamic shape for external mounting. It can mounted on the outside of a bomb, missile, airplane, or other vehicle with an electrocleavable adhesive that can easily be removed. This allows testing on inventory equipment withoutexpensive test fixturing. It provides TSPI to a radio for telemetering information to commanders for their use.Use on weapons is important for early battle damage assessment. The device can be used to track soldiers for operational decisions, and for medical emergency location of wounded soldiers.It has a GPS receiver and an IMU for rapid updates on position and orientation. The device can be used for TSPI for military use on weapons and on soldiers. It has many biomedical uses for testing and rehabilitation. It can also be used for sports analysis on humans and race animals. Due to its low cost design, it can also be usedfor games."
