AbstractNot Available Precision navigation is key to future warfighting doctrine. The ability to accomplish extremely accurate en-route, targeting, and terminal operations based upon precision navigation has become an assumption of battle planning and warfighting operations. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the critical element for precision navigation. Fully exploiting its capability while ensuring the integrity of the navigation solution is the precision navigation imperative. Differential GPS has been selected by the DoD's Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS) program for implementation of the JPALS. The DoD recognizes that certain attributes of current, commercial differential GPS system require augmentation to establish navigation integrity for mission critical operations. The DoD's Multi-function Information Distribution System (MIDS) provides a secure communication link and relative navigation capability that can augment GPS for improved integrity and survivability of precision navigation operations. Phase I Tasking that investigates MIDS as a potential communication link for differential corrections, examines the optimal integration of MIDS, GPS, and INS data for a more robust nav solution, and explores the use of ground-based MIDS in conjunction with GPS as a secure back-up for differential GPS-based precision approach and landing systems is provided.
