Abstract:

Nanohmics and Mr. Jerry Plaszoweiki of Sierra Skyware will team to provide the military with an extremely flexible system aimed at providing the military parachutist with immediate updates relating to current conditions and possible drop zone alternatives. The system is based on a ruggedized PDA which incorporates integral GPS, wireless and a head's up display (HUD). All proposed hardware components consist of COTS devices. Much of the required functionality of the software has been rigorously tested in Sierra Skywares WinPilot system, a popular PDA based software used extensively by glider pilots for cross country and racing applications. This software determines altitude required to reach various designated locations based on input regarding users airframe or parachutes performance (polar curve), current altitude, winds aloft data and altitude of designated DZ's. All data can be displayed in a digital or graphical format which can be changed or customized by simple commands. Nanohmics and Mr. Plaszoweiki will customize the software based on parachutists experience and integrate suitable hardware components to complete the system.
