Abstract
TRIMBLE NAVIGATION POSSESSES A WORKING GPS RECEIVER CAPABLE OF TRACKING DOPPLER FREQUENCY TO .04 HZ WITH LESS THAN 1 SEC AVERAGING. THIS IMPLIES THAT #1 DEGREE HEADING AND ATTITUDE ACCURACIES CAN EASILY BE OBTAINED WITH 3 ANTENNAS SEPARATED BY LESS THAN 1 METER ON A COMMON GROUND PLANE. INNOVATIVE DESIGN PERMITS COMMON MODE REJECTION OF A MAJOR ERROR SOURCE, WHICH FOR OTHER KNOWN DESIGNS IS A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM. TRIMBLE IS A COMMERCIAL COMPANY WITH AN EXCELLENT REPUTATION IN LORAN NAVIGATION RECEIVERS. THE PROPOSED HEADING AND ATTITUDE SENSOR DESIGNED FOR THE COMMERCIAL MARKET WILL DEFINITELY COST LESS THAN OUR COMMERCIAL LORAN RECEIVER. ($2995).
