Abstract
Future precision guided mutions require increased targeting accuracy at a very low cost. In the Phase II program, Mustang Technology Group will show the technical feasibility of an innovative approach to fuse GPS/INS data with available data from advanced RF fuze proximity sensors, both of which are low cost sensors. The resulting proximity sensor aided guidance (PSAG) can improve the overall performance of a GPS/INS guided weapon system. The study includes a lethality study, PSAG simulation enhancements, captive flight testing, a low-cost drop test and a JDAM integration study.
