Abstract
Nanohmics Inc. proposes the development of navigation app on an Android handheld that integrates directly with the current Nanohmics military free fall navigation system (GlideLine). The proposed Android handheld will wirelessly accept a mission file generated by the jumpmaster and use this file along with internal GPS to compute and display the standard GlideLine navigation GUI. As a user available option the Android app will also be configured to wirelessly transfer the navigation image to an STS helmet mounted display. This display is see through, provides good peripheral vision and has been field tested with the GlideLine unit. This solution provides many options that can lead to an optimal system for HAHO operations. Jumpmasters equipped with General Dynamics MR1"s compute the mission file and download the file to the Android handhelds. Mission follow on applications involving the MR1 are still possible but only enough of the MR1"s required for subsequent mission operations are required: reducing cost, required battery power and weight.
