Abstract
There exists a need to develop and flight validate a small, lightweight, aerodynamic GPS test instrumentation package to support high speed munitions development. In order to fulfill this need, the Neptune Sciences, Inc. (NSI) team proposes to apply their expertise and experience (as recently applied to the USN Tactical Dropsonde (TDrop) program) to develop the Miniature Munitions Aerodynamic Global Positioning System (GPS) Reciever/Transmitter (MMAGRET). The technology and flight hardware derived from TDrop results in a significant decrease in program cost, schedule and risk. The proposed MMAGRET program plan (Phase I) consists of requirements definition, research and evaluation of appropriate technologies, trade-off studies, feasibility evaluation preliminary conceptual design and preparation of validation test plans.
