High-Precision Pointing and Location System
EMCORE’s Dynamic Reference Unit-Hybrid Replacement (DRU-H-R) continues its record of excellence in providing mission-critical precision pointing and location to our warfighters. Partnered with the U.S. Army, EMCORE’s combat-proven precision product family delivers mission-critical information such as survey, pointing and position to our soldiers for precise, indirect mass fires and counter-fire operations.
The DRU-H-R has growth capacity to add an embedded Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) GPS with M-code capability. It can also be configured to function in unmanned, rotational and shipboard environments.
The DRU-H-R is an advanced precision navigation system that provides accurate vehicle position and attitude data. This unit replaced the DRU-H on Paladin and Firefinder, both playing critical roles in supporting U.S. ground forces in all phases of active combat operations. The EMCORE DRU-H-R design upgraded system performance by using high accuracy, combat-proven inertial sensors currently fielded on the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), and Improved Position and Azimuth Determining System (IPADS).
The DRU-H-R delivers precisely what the Army of tomorrow needs — a sustainable, affordable system designed to remain operationally effective well into the future.
