Abstract:

"The objective of this Phase I project is to design a MEMS based Inertial Navigation System (INS) for pointing and aiming control of large caliber indirect fire artillery using the AGNC-developed microelectromechanical system (MEMS) IMU. In Phase I, first,the hardware and software design of the MEMS based Inertial Navigation System is proposed and investigated. Then, the multiple IMU placement and processing algorithms are designed and investigated. Next, an AGNC-developed MEMS testing and calibrationsystem is used for design evaluation. Through system modeling and simulation, we investigate the feasibility and performance of the MEMS based Inertial Navigation System. Finally, an accuracy evaluation of the MEMS based Inertial Navigation System isperformed by way of a hardware-in-the-loop simulation. The proposed navigation system can provide attitude and heading (azimuth), angular rate of attitude and heading of the artillery barrel for the control and aiming system. Integrated with the data froma GPS receiver it provides an accurate position of the artillery. DSP and ASIC based system hardware design makes it easy to provide military standard electrical interfaces (such as MIL-STD-1553B) to the command and control system. Because of its smallsize, low cost, and light weight, the MEMS based Inertial Navigation System has wide applications in navigation, control, and guidance. Examples of application areas include: land vehicle navigat
