Abstract
FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR APPLICATION OF MICROMECHANICAL GYRO AND ACCELEROMETER TECHNOLOGY OR OTHER SOLID STATE INERTIAL SENSORS FOR INERTIALLY GUIDED CONVENTIONAL MUNITIONS. INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNITS (IMU'S) ARE CONCEPTUALLY DEFINED FOR USE ON THE MUNITION AND ON THE WEAPON DELIVERY PLATFORM. ESTIMATES OF IMPACT ACCURACY MADE. IMU REQUIREMENTS ARE DEFINED. INNOVATIVE DUAL IMU APPROACH APPLIED TO TANK OR HOWITZER. ELEMENTS OF ALGORITHM DEFINED FOR COMPUTATION OF WEAPON DELIVERY MOTION AND ALLOW RAPID FIRING. ASSESSMENT MADE OF NEWEST GENERATION SOLID STATE INERTIAL SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES.
