Abstract
During Phase I, Yotta Navigation developed a proof-of-concept version of the MOUTman, envisioned to be a rugged, secure, high-precision, handheld real-time navigation system suitable for military operations. This system took advantage of Yotta Navigation expertise in several areas: inertial and GPS-assisted navigation, user interface design, efficient integration of components from mainstream suppliers, and a deep knowledge of real-time systems. For Phase II, Yotta Navigation will provide improvements to the original MOUTman design in several areas: sensor integration, algorithm improvement, communication, mapping, and the use of military GPS. The primary tracking device will continue to use recent advances in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technologies. Three hardware deliveries (preliminary, intermediate and final) of improved prototype MOUTman devices as well as testing will take place during the proposed 24 month Phase II effort.
