Positioning & Navigation

Inertial navigation systems (INS) integrate inertial motion units (IMU) that, as position sensors for mobile platforms, are greatly enhanced by GPS satellite signals.

It is the combination of GPS + INS that enables a valuable positioning and navigation system particularly for high dynamic vehicles.  These rugged modules offered through our partnership with Geodetics Inc., are ideal for autonomous vehicles and airborne payloads. In addition, virtually any positioning and navigation system can be validated through simulation providing repeatable scenarios and saving the time and expense of real world testing.
