Abstract:

Future precision guided munitions require increased targeting accuracy at a very low cost. In this study, Mustang Technology Group will show the technical feasibility of an innovative approach to fuse GPS/INS data with available data from advanced RF fuzeproximity sensors, both of which are low cost sensors. Together, the sensors can improve the overall performance of a GPS/INS guided weapon system. The study includes requirements definition, algorithm development, simulation development, and hardwarearchitecture definition. Low cost guided weapon systems using this technology will have improved targeting performance, thereby reducing the total number of weapons needed. Dual-use opportunities for the technology include low cost automated landingsystems for commercial aircraft.
