Title (EN) MULTI-SOURCE DISTRIBUTED NAVIGATION SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE
(FR) ARCHITECTURE DE SYSTÈME DE NAVIGATION DISTRIBUÉE À SOURCES MULTIPLES
Abstract:
(EN) A distributed navigation system architecture includes a plurality of navigation platforms, each having a universal navigation processor configured to communicate with other universal navigation processors, one or more relative navigation systems configured to provide source information to the navigation platforms, an anchor navigation node disposed on one or more of the plurality of navigation platforms in order to form one or more anchor navigation platforms, the anchor navigation node, including an inertial navigation system, a clock, and one or more absolute navigation systems, configured to determine navigation information based on the inertial navigation system, the clock, the one or more absolute navigation systems and optionally the source information, the one or more anchor navigation platforms providing the navigation information to the other navigation platforms, and a navigation processor system in communication with each of the universal navigation processors in order to provide operating information updates to the universal navigation processors.
(FR) Une architecture de système de navigation distribuée comprend une pluralité de plateformes de navigation, chacune ayant un processeur de navigation universel configuré pour communiquer avec d’autres processeurs de navigation universels, un ou plusieurs systèmes de navigation relatifs configurés pour fournir des informations de source aux plateformes de navigation, un nœud de navigation d’ancrage disposé sur l’une ou plusieurs de la pluralité de plateformes de navigation afin de former une ou plusieurs plateformes de navigation d’ancrage, le nœud de navigation d’ancrage comprenant un système de navigation inertielle, une horloge, et un ou plusieurs systèmes de navigation absolue, configurés pour déterminer des informations de navigation sur la base du système de navigation inertielle, de l’horloge, des un ou plusieurs systèmes de navigation absolue et facultativement des informations de source, la ou les plusieurs plateformes de navigation d’ancrage fournissant les informations de navigation aux autres plateformes de navigation, et un système de processeur de navigation en communication avec chacun des processeurs de navigation universelle afin de fournir des mises à jour d’informations de fonctionnement aux processeurs de navigation universelle.
