The proposed work will demonstrate the feasibility of improved navigation performance using innovative software to process data from an industry standard LN-200 IMU. In Phase II, the software will be incorporated in a notional weapon system inertial navigation system (INS) and subjected to static and dynamic tests in a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) environment. Through Phase III commercialization, enhanced navigation capabilities using the software will be provided to missile, airborne, and maritime weapon system developers.
