Abstract:

The U.S. Army has a need to provide an affordable navigation system to meet the multi-mission needs of the warfighter. Recent advances in Micro-Electro Mechanical System MEMS inertial instruments, Global Positioning System GPS receivers, GPS anti-jam technologies and state-of-the-art processing allow the development of a low-cost, GPSINS-based Personal Navigation System PNS that will meet the expected power, size, weight, cost, and performance needs of the Ground Soldier System formerly Future Force Warrior and Objective Force Warrior program. The Personal Navigation System Program was executed in two phases. This final report focuses on Phase II activities and results. Activities which are solely Phase I tasks are summarized in the Appendix.
