NorthropLogoNorthrop Grumman will collaborate with Toyon Research Corp. to update a geo-registration system the U.S. Air Force uses to gather intelligence and find targets, GPS World reported Tuesday.

This is the second phase of the Air Force Research Laboratory's inertial navigation system contract and Northrop will integrate three-dimensional mapping into the algorithm and test fly the system, the report said.

In the program's first phase, Northrop embedded geo“‘registration algorithms into the inertial navigation system that relies on vision and is designed to work without GPS, according to the report

Charles Volk, vice president of Northrop’s advanced navigation systems division, told GPS World the positioning and geo-registration system aims to provide troops situational awareness.

Geo-registration works to pair images with their physical locations to help detect targets and transmit coordinates to another aircraft, GPS World reports.
