KVH introduces FOG-based GNSS inertial nav for unmanned applications

January 12, 2016By
The GEO-FOG 3D Dual inertial navigation system (INS) is designed for applications that require heading at system startup or in low dynamic conditions.

KVH Industries has introduced the GEO-FOG 3D inertial navigation system (INS). The new product offers roll, pitch and heading accuracies of .05 degrees for demanding applications in unmanned, autonomous and manned aerial, ground, marine and subsurface platforms, such as subsea remotely operated vehicles or mining systems. The GEO-FOG 3D is based on the company’s high-performance fiber optic gyro (FOG) technology combined with centimeter-level... read more

OxTS Creates Locata + INS System

August 7, 2015By
The Inertial+ by OxTS improves measurements from a GPS receiver.

OxTS has successfully integrated a Locata receiver with its Inertial+ to create the first Locata+INS device, according to both companies. The device is capable of achieving centimeter-level accuracy where GPS systems fail. The Inertial+ series, first developed in 2008, was designed for users who had an external GNSS receiver already, but still wanted to gain the benefits of an inertial system. The... read more
