OxTS Launches Lightweight GPS-aided Inertial Navigation System

Published: 06 Aug 2012


The xNAV200 UAS Navigation System

OxTS will launch its smallest and lightest inertial navigation system at this years’ AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America conference in Las Vegas from 6-9 August 2012. The newly developed xNAV200 is a very compact, small and lightweight INS, perfectly suited for all applications where size and weight as well as performance matter.

xNAV200 includes dual-antenna GPS and tightly coupled INS in one compact and powerful package. The tiny system measures reliable, continuous position data at 1m positional accuracy. It also logs highly accurate heading (0.15°), roll/pitch with 0.05° accuracy and many other parameters at 100Hz. xNAV200 will have 24-hour data logging capabilities with a post-processing suite.

It is about the size of a computer mouse and weighs less than 400g. xNAV200 offers highest accuracy and reliability which makes the small sensor ideal for use on any unmanned aerial or ground vehicle and other weight constrained applications.

The cost-effective GPS/INS from OxTS will open the doors for customers who require highly reliable and precise measurements but are faced with size and weight constraints.

Visit OxTS on booth 449 during AUVSI 2012 to find out more about xNAV200.
