Description

Location awareness is essential. In outdoor situations, GPS easily provides this location information. In indoor situations however, a reliable GPS signal is not likely to be available, thus requiring the user to manually enter position information for collected data points, which is time consuming and limits the accuracy of the transmitter map.

To provide indoor tracking capabilities for Flying Squirrel, NRL developed a GOTS inertial measurement sensor called Caribou that uses inertial, magnetic and barometric sensors to provide position information in the absence of a GPS signal. To eliminate the need for two separate devices, Caribou also provides an integrated GPS device for outdoor tracking. Caribou integrates seamlessly with Flying Squirrel, requiring the operator to simply clip the unit to their belt, plug in a USB cable, and for indoor application, pick a starting location.
