Abstract
Current precision guided weapons utilize GPS/INS and seeker technologies for guidance to ground targets. GPS/INS systems work by acquiring position and velocity information and maneuvering to given target coordinates entered before release. If seekertechnology is used, target-tracking techniques are employed to guide to the final target. The need to precisely attack fixed/moveable targets has come to the forefront in the most recent conflicts. Seekers bring high accuracy for moving/moveable targetsbut also much higher cost and greater mission planning, power, and cooling requirements. The ability to attack this class of targets without the expense and issues associated with seekers is desirable. This proposal presents a novel concept for precisionguidance against fixed/moveable ground targets for implementation in air-launched munitions. The system will provide precise all weather engagement of moving targets in a high J/S environment. Additional benefits include precise navigation for othercommercial and DOD assets.
