Stanford University’s GPS Laboratory has developed, coordination with Trimble Navigation Ltd., a new 40 channel GPS receiver specially designed for automa control of an unmanned airplane. Recent flight tests of airplane have demonstrated the integration of the rece board with and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and oth sensors. The new board consists of five, eight chan parallel GPS receiver sections, all sharing a comm oscillator, generating position, velocity, timing, and attitud outputs. The… Expand
