Abstract:

Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to enhance the Precision Pulse Positioning System (3PS) that was developed on previous SBIR contracts to produce a solution for position and orientation of battlefield platforms. The Precision Pulse Positioning System (3PS) technology will provide precise near-instantaneous position estimates of a platform and the PRA Polarimeter technology will permit the near-instantaneous measurement of polarization that can easily be mounted on the platform body. The combination of these two innovative technologies enables an effective approach to provide self-determination of the position and orientation of deployed battlefield platforms. The primary objective of 3PS enhanced with orientation is the performance improvement or elimination of inertial sensors on specific platforms. The multi-function capability of 3PS with orientation allows the technology to have application to numerous Army mission areas. 3PS with orientation provides an infrastructure for positioning and orientation needs that is independent of the specific operational event and, as such, can be applied to many types of ground and airborne platforms.
