Guidance navigation control (GNC) is a system used in space shuttles and defense vehicles to guide aerospace and defense vehicles with and without pilot control. GNC software controls navigation guidance and works with a GNC system. An aircraft navigation system uses inertial navigation guidance technology. Detection aircraft rely on radar technology, and satellites operate by this system as well as aircraft and shuttles.
Aircraft guidance uses a navigation and guidance system to perform complicated functions including take offs and landings, tracking, monitoring systems functions, coordinating and responding to data from GNC software and GPS technology to locate areas of orbit. Small companies can offer special products or subcontract manufacturing to the large companies that are the contract holders for this work.
1. The government and military use guidance navigation control systems for aircraft and space vehicles.
2. Navigation and guidance systems also use GPS technology, which also sells on the civilian market.
3. Eight companies, dependent on a vast number of suppliers and vendors, fulfill 75% of the Defense Department and aeronautical contracts.
Get acquainted with the big companies that make navigation and guidance systemsThe logistics and coordination of engineers, suppliers, software developers and contractors that develop and improve guidance, navigation and control systems include a wide variety of considerations. Sources for these systems have to be first rate and maintain quality standards as developed by organizations such as the Society of American Engineers.
Consider that a navigation and guidance system needs software programs for military guidance systemsAircraft guidance requires reliable and cutting edge software that integrates into the GNC system. There are companies that specialize in developing this software.
Consider subcontracting to guidance, navigation and control manufacturersSystems for aeronautical and aircraft use are technological feats, requiring many different kinds of companies to perform different functions.
- Every company that works on a government project, even as a subcontractor, must become a registered US vendor. You can complete this process through the US Office of Procurement. The process is a notoriously difficult process for first-time applicants, but worth the effort because defense and aerospace departments are the biggest users of navigation and guidance technologies. It is possible to hire consultants who will get you through the process.
