Conventional avionic configurations for precision-guided weapons are often unnecessarily costly and inefficient because of built-in (but unused) redundancy instrumentation. An extremely effective way of reducing the avionics cost of precision-guided weapons is to integrate the design of the navigation, guidance, and control subsystems with a common set of strapdown components and a Kalman mixer/filter. In addition to reducing the cost and improving reliability of the overall system, it is also shown that optimum mixing of the strapdown data can, in many cases, result in performance superior to that obtained with more expensive avionic components used in the conventional configuration.
