Research Institution
The objective of this effort is to implement a customer tailorable GNC design and integrate that design with an existing, highly-scaled IMU solution. Advanced packaging techniques and electrical performance enhancement strategies will be applied to the integrated design, to achieve improved efficiency. Further, performance flexibility will be achieved via ring laser gyro selection to provide the customer with the ability to tailor performance to his specific need. Finally, radiation hardness will be addressed by applying hardening strategies already applied to the existing IMU design. Significant cost benefit will accrue by extending specific hardening and performance enhancement strategies already applied to the IMU design to the GNC as needed and by providing the user with the capability of tailor the GNC/IMU performance to his particular need. This inherent tolerability will avoid a point-design solution and extend the utility of the hardened GNC/IMU across a broad range of diverse system requirements.
