      What Heading Correction Type Do I Use for My Application?

      Posted by Luke Wilson on Aug 20, 2020 11:21:09 AM

      Purpose: To determine which type of heading correction is best for different applications of the INS.

      Last Updated: June 2020

      For INS-D/DL: The “Dual GNSS” type of heading correction can be used for any application that allows the installation of the INS and two GNSS antennas with a baseline of at least 1.5 m (it can be static, quasi-static, and slowly moving objects as well as objects with high dynamic). So, any application where two antennas can be installed with a clear view of the sky and less than 1.5 meters away from one each other. When Dual GNSS type is used, the algorithm starts as soon as the GNSS receiver provides a heading solution.

      Purpose: The Inertial Labs INS has five methods of hard and soft iron calibrations for heading calculations.


      1. 3D Calibration
      Application: The 3D calibration is designed for carrier objects (typically aerial, or marine) that can operate in full heading, pitch and roll ranges. A possible application using this calibration method is bathymetric surveillance.
