Abstract
The objective of this project is to investigate, evaluate, and demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative Integrated Communication and Wireless Wide Area Networked Precision Geolocation system for generic multi-agent high-performance real-time Combat Decision Aids System (CDAS) for Future Combat System. This geolocation system will provide precision interruption-free position for multiple tracking of personnel, robots, UGV and other combat platforms, in complicated environments and terrains. The developed Intelligent Precision Geolocation system components can be easily integrated with ARDEC?¦s CDAS for Future Combat System (FCS), Objective Force Warrior, Land Warrior and Homeland Defense applications. Integrated with CDAS, this system allows every combat member to be linked through an intelligent network that provides Precision Geolocation and other information to each other. During this Phase I project, an innovative type of Wireless Wide Area Networked module will be integrated into the geolocation system that will perform network communication, improve geolocation accuracy, and increase the tracking area coverage at the same time. A suite of communication/ranging control approaches and algorithms will be implemented and tested. The integration approach of system information will be designed and tested.
