The GPS division at White Sands Missile Range employs a system known as Advanced Range Data System (ARDS) that consists of high-dynamic aircraft pods housed in AIM-9 type enclosures along with some low-dynamic GPS receivers. The low dynamic receivers are not equipped with on-board data storage for fault tolerance. Additionally, the system is not capable of displaying appropriate statistical data to the operators.
Group CMB of the University of Texas at El Paso will undertake the responsibility of providing the low-dynamic receivers with a solid-state recorder and will also develop an enhanced visualization tool for statistical display and message processing.
