AbstractThe challenge to develop new innovative devices and methods to create a miniature, low cost, low drift, high accuracy inertial navigation system (INS). This challenge is met using arrays of COTS MEMS inertial devices to fabricate a small light weight rugged IMU/INS with GPS and a embedded dual processor architecture capable of multiple I/O connections. Bench top testing will demonstrate an ultra low drift IMU/INS GPS-independence, especially when in GPS-denied situations. An advanced heading system with a suite of advanced algorithms will be tested externally and compared with candidate Kalman Filter solutions before being integrated with the IMU/INS to demonstrate accurate azimuth and optimum position determination.
