Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-092
Budget: 09/24/09 - 06/25/10

Gravity aided navigation has been explored previously using Kalman filter methods by various researchers. A Kalman filter based implementation provides best estimates under the assumption of Gaussian noise properties and linearity of the system dynamics. Typically, the geophysical aided navigation applications are non-Gaussian and non-linear. We...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-230
Budget: 05/25/07 - 05/25/09

In the proposed phase 2 effort, the GeoPhysical Aided Navigation (GPAN) particle filter based software architecture and code will be designed and built so that it has great generality and can accommodate a wide variety of INS systems and geophysical sensors. This will be accomplished by preparing the software as a set of modules - a core module...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-230
Budget: 01/24/05 - 07/23/05

Many moving platforms, including SSBNs and SSGNs, rely on inertial navigation systems for position and velocity information, either as the primary navigation system or as a backup system. Because of drifts in critical hardware components, INS systems must be periodically reset using occasional position fixes from a sensor, or sensors, external ...
