Abstract : This technical report documents the results of flight test of the Honeywell lLaser Inertial Navigational System (LINS), an engineering model of a ring laser gyro strapdown inertial navigation system. The purpose of the testing was to demonstrate strapdown laser inertial navigation system advanced technology and to evaluate the LINS as a potential candidate system to meet future, moderate accuracy, medium cost, inertial navigator needs. The testing was considered developmental, rather than verification, within the meaning of applicable DOD/DDR and E directives.
