Abstract
The primary objective of this project is the development of an innovative method of providing adaptive polarized RF reference sources for establishing a battlefield position and orientation referencing system over the battlefield and design and fabrication of such a reference source. These referencing sources are intended to be used onboard weapons platforms, UAVs, handheld devices and the like. The referencing system can be used with polarized RF sensors onboard guided munitions, ground and airborne platforms, and on the soldier to measure their position and orientation relative to the established referencing coordinate system. The proposed reference sources are easy to deploy and provide reliable and secure reference sources as alternative to GPS, lasers, magnetometer and inertia technologies for the next generation of smart munitions and weapon platforms. These innovative polarized RF referencing sources are capable of scanning through almost any specified scanning range and scanning pattern and frequencies. They reference sources with the capability of significantly increasing the precision of the polarized RF based angular orientation and position sensors. With the proposed polarized RF reference sources, scanning patterns can be selected to significantly increase sensor precision, reduce the effects of noise, and reduce the probability of detection and effective jamming
