  4. Prototyping of Transform-Domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: MDA16012

    QuNav proposes to validate and prototype a TRansform-domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction (TRIMAC). TRIMAC utilizes joint time/frequency domain processing of inertial sensor data in order to mitigate INS drift in the absence of external navaids (such as GPS). Frequency-domain implementation is particularly designed to improve the inertial performance in high-vibration missile enviro ...
