Abstract:

This report shows the feasibility and characteristics of a low-cost, strapped-down inertial guidance system for a tactical, short flight time missile. The guidance system incorporates only state-of-the-art hardware, specifically 1 a whole number, vector, digital computer solving a three parameter Euler angle body axis to inertial coordinate transformation, and 2 existing enertial sensors and associated operating electronics specifically designed to achieve the requirements of a strapped-down system for this type of application.
