Abstract"NovaSol is pleased to propose a feasibility and conceptual design study for the development of a compact, rugged Geometric Pairing appliance. The proposed system, called GeoSight, enables realtime scoring for indirect fire weapons in training engagements.GeoSight does this by instrumenting the weapon platform to maintain an accurate knowledge of its location and bearing. When a simulated round is "fired," GeoSight uses this information to calculate a trajectory and determine the location and time of themunitions hit. The essential innovation in GeoSight is a novel combination of sets of small positioning and pointing sensors with sophisticated algorithms for internal calibration, all within a scalable architecture. By maximizing the performance andstability of the sensor suite, GeoSight delivers optimal pointing performance while minimizing the weight/size/cost burden. The GeoSight project will extend NovaSol's capabilities in the area of high-accuracy geolocation, pointing and stabilizationsystems. In particular, GeoSight will push this technology in the direction of small, lightweight, rugged, inexpensive systems. These will have important commercial applications for image stabilization, such as stabilized hand-held cameras and scanninginstruments. At the high-precision end, GeoSight technology could find applications in target monitoring systems for police helicopter surveillance, precision emplacement of air-delivered sensor pack
