Abstract:

Propagation Research Associates, Inc. proposes to leverage technology developed in a previous SBIR projects to develop the Training Environment Position and Orientation System (TEPOS) for determination of the position and orientation of each participant's head and limbs as well as devices such as a weapon or range finder. TEPOS combines a number of PRA technologies including: waveform diversity, a distributed receiver system, PRA's proprietary waveform processing, and PRA's unique rapid estimation technology to determine position and orientation of many participants and platforms simultaneously. Leveraging the technology developed under the Precision Pulse Positioning System, Precision Orientation System, and the Fast State Estimation contracts, PRA will design a system that provides accurate position and orientation information of a platform in a completely wireless fashion yet add mere ounces (tens of grams) of mass to the platform. The advantages of this system are highly accurate position and orientation information updated in real-time, completely wireless between platform and imagery generator, each platform is uniquely identified allowing individual tracking in an environment containing many platforms, and mitigation of multipath fading thereby assuring optimum performance.
