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 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 weaponry and personnel. Elsicon proposes a fully integrated Micro Sensor Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that can measure the linear accelerationand rotation of objects. The compact design makes the proposed Micro Sensor IMU rugged and robust for military applications. The integrated nature of the Micro Sensor IMU increases the potential for economical manufacturing. As a result, the MicroSensor IMU has potential in commercial applications.The compact, integrated, economical nature of the proposed Micro Sensor IMU makes it ideal for commercial applications. These devices are compact enough to be carried by individuals or incorporated intoany moving vehicle. As a result, applications abound in the areas of security and travel. The Micro Sensor IMU can be used in any navigation and guidance applications independent of the GPS system. However, the Micro Sensor is also synergistic with theGPS system and can increase the flexibility and reliability of navigation systems that use the GPS system.
