Abstract:

In the proposed Phase I effort, KVH Industries will develop an Electronic Pointing Device (EPD) by implementing Northfinding software in its TG6000 Inertial Measurement Unit(IMU) product that is substantially smaller than the existing solution. Specifically, KVH will build three modified coils into a standard TG6000 system, modify the existing gyro digital filter to reduce noise, implement Northfinding software for the TG6000 IMU system, measure accuracy vs. measurement time for the baseline north finding software, and investigate new methods of shock and vibration hardening of the TG6000 without the existing shock isolator. The end result of this SBIR will be an EPD design that can be readily transitioned into a commercial product during Phase II.
