Paper Abstract

A robust onboard full angular orientation sensor solution, based on a polarization scanning reference source and polarized geometrical cavity orientation sensors is presented. The sensor system provides a new non-GPS and non-inertial approach to angle measurements, with several key advantages over other methods, which include traditional phased-array antenna systems and the like. In this novel approach, the angular orientation information is coded into a time dependent pattern, which is insensitive to noise, while making the angle measurement independent of distance from the referencing source. The manuscript presents data from a field deployable system.
