This paper presents the formal qualification test-performance (FQT-P) results of the Modular Azimuth Position System Hybrid (MAPSH) program. The MAPSH land navigation and orientation system consists of the Honeywell dynamic reference unit-hybrid, the precision lightweight GPS receiver (PLGR), the vehicle motion sensor, and a system unique control and display unit. The MAPSH program is being developed by the US Army PM Paladin/FAASV Program Office which is upgrading the present MAPS DRU to integrate with the PLGR. Current US Army systems using the MAPS are the M109A6 155 mm self propelled howitzer (Paladin), the AN/TPQ-36(V)7 and AN/TPQ-37 FireFinder radar systems. This paper provides the results of the following tests: HMMWV performance testing; M109A6 Paladin SP howitzer performance testing, TPQ-36 FireFinder radar performance testing
