Northrop Demos Micro GPS Navigation Alternative for DARPA

northrop-Grumman_BLUENorthrop Grumman has developed and demonstrated a prototype of a technology the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency wants to help navigate personal and unmanned vehicles in locations where GPS services are not available or limited.

The micro-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Gyro device is intended to offer users comparable performance to a navigation-grade fiber-optic gyro tool Northrop Grumman announced Tuesday.

DARPA and Northrop launched the eight-year Navigation-Grade Integrated Micro Gyroscopes project in October 2005 to develop technology for self-contained, chip-scale inertial navigation and precision guidance.

Micro-NMRG technology contains no moving parts, works to uses the spin of atomic nuclei to detect and measure rotation and is designed to not be sensitive to vibration and acceleration.
