Integrated Auto-Calibration Self-Contained Target Acquisition Module
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The objective of this project is to demonstrate an innovative Integrated Auto-Calibration Self-Contained Target Acquisition Module (referred to as IASTAM in this proposal) for a Handheld Target Location System. In the Phase I of the project, we will test and evaluate a technical approach for the IASTAM implementation based on a new gyrocompassing method of an inertial navigation system (INS). It is based on fully Auto-Calibration Self-Contained inertial navigation system (INS) principles, and does not depend on magnetometers for azimuth/heading determination. Thus the system outputs and performance are not affected by the environmental magnetic fields. In the Phase I, the proposed approach of the IASTAM will be investigated and implemented. We will carry out hardware and software evaluation of the IASTAM. Laboratory testing will be carried out to verify the system performance. Based on the Phase I work we will build a prototype system for field experimentation/tests in Phase II.
