Abstract
"The success or failure of military operations increasingly depends on situation awareness. Critical to situation awareness is the knowledge of the precise position and heading of enemy weaponry and personnel. There is a need for navigational systemsindependent of external sources and signals that would provide information about the position or movement of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) used to monitor military operations. The compact design makes the proposed Micro Sensor IMU rugged and robust formilitary applications. The integrated nature of the Micro Sensor IMU increases the potential for economical manufacturing. As a result, the Micro Sensor IMU has potential use in low cost UAV Avionics.BENEFITS: The compact, integrated, economical natureof the proposed Micro Sensor IMU makes it ideal for commercial applications. These devices are compact enough to be carried by individuals or incorporated into any moving vehicle. As a result, applications abound in the areas of security and travel. TheMicro Sensor IMU can be used in any navigation and guidance applications independent of the GPS system. However, the Micro Sensor is also synergistic with the GPS system and can increase the flexibility and reliability of navigation systems that use theGPS system."
