Abstract:

Various approaches for onboard measurement of scalar and vector separation between RPVs flying in formations are briefly reviewed, and a technique for vector measurement based on Induced Directional FM IDFM is recommended. A performance analysis is then presented which shows that the recommended onboard sensor system is capable of meeting 1 meter rms error bound over separations from 30 m to 1 km and angular accuracies bounded by .00016.
