Abstract
With a view to satisfying the navigational requirements of TRUMP, CPF and future submarines, DREO initiated an investigation into the possible extension of MINS (Marine Integrated Navigation System) to accommodate the two inertial navigation systems which each of these platforms were expected to have, in addition to the various navigation sensors that MINS already integrates (GPS, Transit, Loran-C, Omega, Speedlog and Gyrocompass). It soon became clear that the ideal solution would be a new system with a different architecture than MINS. The new concept was called DIINS (Dual Inertial Integrated Navigation System). A study was therefore initiated to determine the most appropriate hardware and software to be used in the design and development of DIINS. This report contains a brief description of the recommended hardware and software solution, as well as the rationale for their selection.
