With ubiquitous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) getting adopted into a constantly increasing number of civil and military applications, operation capabilities are getting more sophisticated. Needs now extend further than just operating Beyond the Line Of Sight (BLOS). Remote operations for applications such as border patrol, aerial surveillance, and specialized missions require that users maintain an uninterrupted connection with a UAV for data transmission, and navigational aid...
For years Inertial Labs has produced high accuracy Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) at the world’s best price-performance ratio. An INS estimates the position, attitude, and velocity using the gyroscopes and accelerometers contained inside an inertial measurement unit (IMU). Position accuracy can be greatly improved when the INS is aided by Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). However, GNSS is not always available. Customer requirements demand for better performance of an INS during GNSS outage. Outages can be caused by tunnels, urban canyons, roads under bridges, etc...
A shift towards a new generation of advanced Command Post Terminals is happening gradually on several frontiers This new generation, known as the Family of Advanced Beyond Line of Sight Terminals (FAB-T) is expanding upon existing foundations by adding new software and hardware. The Inertial Labs Antenna Reference Unit is used on FAB-T and currently belongs to the Air Force Command Post Terminal program The upgrades are to enhance the performance of satellite control functions The United States Air Force purchased the Inertial Labs AHRS for antenna modification kits, in order to keep the AFCPT systems at a state of Initial Operating Capability (IOC).
Precision Agriculture is one of the most used cases of autonomy in this century. Recent reports show that by the year 2025, Precision Agriculture is expected to grow to become a 43.4-billion-dollar industry worldwide. For an industry that didn’t begin gaining traction until the 1990’s, it’s quite an impressive market.
Based on cost-effective MEMS technology, the Inertial Labs Single and Dual Antenna GPS-Aided INS is a new generation of fully-integrated, high-performance strap-down systems. Inertial Labs GPSAided INS utilizes a GNSS receiver produced by NovAtel®, barometer, 3-axes each of temperature calibrated precision, tactical grade Accelerometers, and Gyroscopes to provide accurate orientation. Inertial Labs GPS-Aided INS contains new on-board sensor fusion filter, state of the art navigation and guidance algorithms, and calibration software.
