Inertial Labs has released the INS-DM, a new dual GPS-aided Inertial Navigation System (INS) that also integrates an Attitude & Heading Reference System (AHRS) and Air Data Computer (ADC).
The high-performance strapdown system determines position, velocity and absolute orientation (heading, pitch and roll) for any device on which it is mounted. Horizontal and Vertical Position, Velocity and Orientation are determined with high accuracy for both motionless and dynamic applications.
The rugged IP68-rated system features EMC/EMI shielding and is designed to MIL-STD-1275 standards for use in defense and military operations. The INS-DM supports a range of Inertial Labs MEMS Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) as well as other IMUs, such as the Honeywell HG4930. It also utilizes different multi constellation GNSS receivers such as Novatel OEM7 series or the u-blox F9 series.
The design of the INS-DM includes an optional ADC, supported by two Honeywell barometric sensors, and the ability to support an internal Fluxgate or external Stand-Alone Magnetic Compass (SAMC). The INS-DM contains Inertial Labs’ new on-board sensor fusion filter, state of the art navigation and guidance algorithms, and calibration software.
Other key features on the INS-DM system include:
- Commercially exportable
- GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BEIDOU, QZSS, RTK supported signals
- Total and static pressure sensors for calculating indicated airspeed
- SP, SBAS, DGPS, RTK and PPP corrections supported for precise real time operation
- GNSS measurements and IMU raw data for post processing
- Advanced, extendable (based on application), embedded Kalman Filter based sensor fusion algorithms
- State-of-the-art algorithms for different dynamic motions of helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, marine vessels, and ground vehicles
- Full temperature calibration of all sensing elements
- Aiding data: Wind sensor, Air Speed Sensor, Doppler shift from locator (for long-term GPS denied), External position and External Heading
