Protection

Since there initiation into the market in 2015, OpenWorks Engineering has been seeking to revolutionize the industry of security. While many industries focus primarily on offensive strategies for Autonomous Unmanned Systems (AUS) protection, OpenWorks has pushed an innovative solution that revolutionizes the defensive playing field. In the beginning of 2018, Openworks began it's partnership with Inertial Labs and entered testing phases for it's most successful product line, SkyWall.

“Tunnel Guide” Feature for GPS-Aided INS Improves Performance During GNSS Outage

Posted by Will Dillingham on Jan 25, 2020 2:30:48 PM

Defining the Problem

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 a GNSS outage. Outages can be caused by tunnels, urban canyons, roads under bridges, etc.

U.S. Air Force Antenna Reference Unit Employs Inertial Labs AHRS

Posted by Will Dillingham on Jan 25, 2020 8:19:38 AM

Introduction

A shift towards a new generation of advanced Command Post Terminals (CPT) 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 (ARU) is used on FAB-T and currently belongs to the Air Force Command Post Terminal (AFCPT) 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).
