Abstract
The objective of this project is to investigate, evaluate, and demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative Miniaturized Smart Self-calibration Electronic Pointing Device (EPD) for Indirect Fire Weapons applications using the coremicro Palm Navigator, as the mortars azimuth/heading and elevation measurement devices. The Miniaturized Smart Self-calibration Electronic Pointing Device provides complete and accurate mortars motion measurements including: azimuth/heading and elevation angles, plus acceleration/deceleration, velocity, position, and angular velocity. In Phase I of this project, using the AGNC products, the EPD system requirements analysis will be performed. The coremicro Palm Navigator will be evaluated as the mortars azimuth/heading and elevation measurement device. Using the AGNC developed simulation test tool, the GPS/IMU REALTIME SIMULATOR, the mortars azimuth/heading and elevation measurement data can be simulated and the system is tested in the laboratory environment. Finally system demonstration and test will be performed for system verification.
