AbstractPrimarily, this technology will provide military Free Fall Operators the ability to rapidly acquire a GPS position fix upon exiting the aircraft allowing them to immediately begin navigating towards the landing point. Secondly, this system will provide military Free Fall Operators more situational awareness by providing the ability to visualize the location of other jumpers and cargo during flight. Human systems can also reprogram cargo systems in-flight through the communications network. Thirdly, this system will allow other GPS dependent products to receive GPS technology updates (Anti Spoofing / Anti Jamming / Update Refresh Rates) without any need to modify their existing hardware. Lastly, this product may, after a thorough simulation and examination, supplement GPS position fix with an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that could lead the free fall operator to the landing point in the event of a GPS jammed scenario.
