VectorNav Technologies, a developer of inertial navigation solutions, has announced that it has received accreditation for the AS9100 Rev. D international aerospace standard for its Dallas, Texas headquarters. Based on ISO 9001 standards, the AS9100 standard is a set of quality requirements established by the aerospace industry in order to satisfy DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements.
Founded in 2008, VectorNav is established in the market as an innovator of miniature, high-performance MEMS- and GPS/GNSS-based inertial navigation systems. The releases of VectorNav’s surface mount VN-100 IMU/AHRS, VN-200 GPS/INS and VN-300 dual antenna GNSS/INS were each market firsts, and the company has recently released a tactical-grade line of inertial navigation systems that delivers an excellent price/performance ratio.
The AS9100 accreditation marks VectorNav’s achievement in demonstrating the highest level of manufacturing, quality and customer service standards. The certification represents VectorNav’s ability and commitment to deliver to its customers worldwide the highest quality miniature inertial navigation systems, from rapid procurement during testing and development to high-volume capacity for integration and production.
“Earning the AS9100 designation for our Dallas facility demonstrates that we are a highly capable supplier to the global aerospace industry,” said Scott MacDonald, Process and Quality Engineer at VectorNav. “Operating to the highest standards of quality has always been a core principle for us, and this certification reflects our continued commitment to ensure our processes and systems deliver products and services that exceed our customers’ quality, cost, and speed expectations.”
