Miniplate Picture

The Miniplate is an Advanced Range Data System (ARDS) participant. The system uses data from a multichannel, multiband GPS and from a pseudo-IMU computational engine, to calculate a TSPI solution in near real time. The Miniplate transmits the real time coordinate data to the test range on the ARDS microwave network. The Miniplate is full participant within the ARDS network, is frequency agile, and is capable of operating on any test range within the ARDS environment   The Miniplate is designed to be low cost and is frequently used in destructive testing of both airborne and groundborne systems.
