Over the past few decades, a number of trends within the Department of Defense have created a pressing need for defense-focused precision navigation. Weapons systems have moved from single, stand-alone systems to multiple interdependent vehicles working together for mission success. Along with that, the size of targets continues to get smaller and smaller, which increases the need for better accuracy in targeting. Ultimately, the result is that precision navigation is no longer “nice to have”, but a structural component to achieving the mission. Research opportunities are available in three main areas: autonomous and cooperative systems, non-GPS precision navigation, and robust GPS and GNSS navigation/NAVWAR.
