For this effort, Progeny Systems Corporation is proposing to perform the initial development of the Pathfinder set of algorithms which normalize navigation data from a variety of sources and expose that data for aircraft and systems applications. As part of this normalization, the hub will contain filtering and correlation functions while can assess weighted and scaled navigation inputs. This normalized nav data (RF PNT data, scene matching, EGI and SOO data) will be analyzed by Pathfinder algorithms for own-ship position and be provided as a “nav out”. In conjunction with the Pathfinder algorithms a hosting environment will be developed. The hosting environment is envisioned to run on a PMA 209 specified hardware baseline, with the goal of hosting multiple, disparate systems; allowing them to communicate with each other and the baseline aircraft; and easily displaying relevant tactical data. Pathfinder will run within the PMA 209 hosting environment, coordinating a variety of Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) data inputs including:•     Computer Vision (CV) for scene matching•     Radio Frequency (RF) - based PNT•     Signals of Opportunity (SOO)•     Own-ship’ Embedded GPS and Inertial Navigation Systems (EGI) signals
