The proposed contract is for a one-time purchase with a twelve-month warranty of the CAST-3000-LA to fully support integration testing of GPS/INS navigation systems where the inertial sensor and GPS receiver are either tightly or ultra-tightly coupled.

System is configured in a customized rack enclosure with an uninterruptible power supply, power conditioner, flat screen monitor, and keyboard. A twelve-month factory warranty comes with no additional charge. A CAST-DLL is included which allows remote control over Ethernet.
