Abstract:

This report describes simulations and field tests performed with the two digital processing systems, DP1 and DP2, which were built on the Digital Guided Weapons Technology Program. The DP1 system was integrated with a GFE inertial Measurement Unit IMU and, after testing at Hughes Aircraft Company, it was integrated with the Completely Integrated Reference Instrumentation System CIRIS at the central Inertial Guidance Test Facility CIGTF, Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. Performance tests were carried out by the Air Force in the laboratory, in a van, and in an aircraft. Performance in navigation accuracy relative to CIRIS was determined. The DP2 system was integrated into a semiphysical hybrid computer simulation at the contractor facility. The simulation performed was that of a long-range air-to-surface weapon which uses an aided inertial guidance system for midcourse guidance. A simulated LORAN sensor was used to update the inertial navigation subsystem. The DP2 software included Management and Executive Software and the following computational elements LORAN processing, alignment filter midcourse guidance law, navigation, and flight control.
