The UNCUN1 uses a GPS receiver, coremicro IMU, as well as a processor module with embedded software. It provides interface to facilitate input/output to a PC for demonstration display. The connection to a PC permits the display of position time histories for information, study and general education purposes, as shown in the Figure.

The UNCUN1 combines AGNC's MEMS IMU and possibly the robust complementary service of DGPS corrections from the FAA WAAS DGPS systems to provide unprecedented accuracy performance for a wide variety of precise navigation and positioning applications. Detail characteristics see the System Characteristics below.

System Characteristics:

  • Requires a speed input in case of GPS loss.
  • 12-channel GPS receiver
  • DGPS-Ready Unit:
    — Incorporates RF signals from WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation   System) to provide differential positioning solution.
  • Supply Voltage: 8 to 16 VDC
  • Weight: 6oz.
  • Dimensions: 2.6"W x 2.8"L x 1.5"H
  • Volume: 10.9 cubic inches
  • Operating Temperature: -40 degrees C to +70 degrees C.
  • User Interface:
    Convenient user interface for user's test, demonstration, and applications.
    — RS-232

    Output Data Stream:
    — 3 angular rate and 3 acceleration (specific force)
    — 3 position (latitude, longitude, and altitude)
    — 3 velocity components (north, east, and down)
    — 3 attitudes (pitch, roll, and heading)

    Position Accuracy:
    — About 3 meters (within the coverage of WAAS service)

    Velocity Accuracy:
    — About 0.2 meter/second

    Data Acquisition (Optional):
    — Data logging and display are available by using AGNC developed software.
    — Unit's size remains small.
