Abstract: 

We present results on the feasibility of developing the Gimballess Navigation Inertial Satellite Control System (NISCS/ GPS SNE) on the basis of MEMMS-sensors and GPS Satellite Navigation Equipment (GPS SNE) for commercial Launch Vehicles (LV) of light and middle classes. We note that this NISCS/GPS SNE is of less cost, less mass, less dimensions, and energy capacity. Feasibility of developing the NISCS/ GPS SNE is based on the analysis of solution of two tasks: a) statistic model ling of LV disturbed motion, which takes into account the errors of NISCS/GPS SNE operation, and b) establishment of the NISCS/GPS SNE rational structure and instruments, which takes the modeling and experimental development results into account. We demonstrate that NISCS/ GPS SNE use will be helping to increase competitiveness of Launch Vehicle of a reviewed class due to the reduction of LV launch cost and increase of Payload mass. 

Keywords: GPS satellite navigation equipment, hybrid Control System, MEMMS gyroscopes and accelerometers, unmanned navigation system, weakly connected system.
