CARGO SECURITY SYSTEM-FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS REPORT - HYBRID DEAD RECKONING AND HYPERBOLIC GRID LOCATION - EQUIPMENT SYSTEM IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

It was found that the concept of hybrid dead reckoning, using inertial components, is technically feasible but that the annual maintenance costs of currently available directional gyroscopes preclude its use by costs of currently available directional gyroscopes preclude its use by the trucking industry. The other system tested, hyperbolic grid location, which uses phase-locked signals from commercial am (amplitude modulation) broadcasting stations for vehicle location purposes was found to be technically sound, and implementation costs are within the bounds established for the cargo security system.
