Abstract:

FUTURE TACTICAL DEMAND RAPID AND ROBUST TRANSFER ALIGNMENT FOR WEAPON DELIVERY TO MEET THE HIGH-PRECISION, HIGH-AGILITY, AND LOW-OBSERVABILITY REQUIREMENTS. AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION (AGNC) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A RAPID ROBUST TRANSFER ALIGNMENT SYSTEM BY EXPLOITING OPTICAL INTERFEROMETRIC AND ADVANCED ESTIMATION TECHNIQUES. OPTICAL INTERFEROMETERS ARE USED TO PERFORM SLAVE SENSOR CALIBRATION, WHILE ADVANCED ESTIMATION ALGORITHMS ARE USED FOR ALIGNMENT. THIS WILL RESULT IN A RAPID, ROBUST, PRECISE, AND RELIABLE TRANSFER ALIGNMENT SYSTEM WITH MINIMAL SYSTEM MODIFICATIONS. IN PHASE I, BOTH OPTICAL INTERFEROMETRIC AND ADVANCED ESTIMATION TECHNIQUES WILL BE APPLIED TO THE TRANSFER ALIGNMENT DESIGN. IN PHASE II, THE SYSTEM WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AND TESTED IN A HARDWARE-IN-THE-LOOP ENVIRONMENT. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS - THE TECHNIQUES EXPLORED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE TRANSFER ALIGNMENT SYSTEM CAN BE APPLIED TO NAVIGATION, MEASUREMENT, ALIGNMENT, AND MANY OTHER DISCIPLINES.
