Abstract
The U.S. Army is looking for a low-cost navigation system with highly efficient route planning algorithm that provides real-time route planning/re-planning and is capable of deployment within the tactical and logistic vehicles in urban and suburban hostile environments. In the hostile, highly complex and often unfamiliar battle situations/terrain, it is a challenge to maintain robust communication and situational awareness for the soldiers/small operation units in urban areas as well as open fields under dense vegetation. A situational awareness navigation system that provides robust, up to date, enemy location/blockade/movements, road and terrain conditions, and real-time route planning for engagement or retreat will be an invaluable asset to the warfighters in the current and future battle space. Leveraging on AGNC's coremicro 4D-GIS system, the coremicro Palm Navigator for GPS and GPS-denied Navigation and tracking, more than twenty years leading in Guidance, Navigation, Control & Communications (GNCC) and control software/hardware integration and development, AGNC is confident in integrating and developing the Real-Time Ultra Resolution Navigation System (ReTURNS) that will fulfill the need of the U.S. Army.
