Whitepaper: GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation Systems for Remote Sensing

Published: 02 Apr 2019

Inertial Labs GPS-aided INS for remote sensing whitepaperInertial Labs has released a whitepaper discussing the use of GPS-aided inertial navigation systems (INS) for remote sensing using UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and other unmanned systems, for applications such as industrial surveying, mapping and precision agriculture.

Successful remote sensing involves picking the right set of core elements, integrating them into a solution and as a result, achieving the desired precision point cloud. All this must be done within the shortest period of time and within budget.

The Inertial Labs whitepaper discusses:

  • The evolution of remote sensing
  • Multirotor vs fixed-wing UAV platforms for remote sensing
  • The importance of precision point clouds
  • GNSS post-processing software
  • Testing a GPS-aided INS with a DJI Matrice 600 Pro drone platform

Remote sensing is playing an increasingly large part in modern society. Data for civil, research, and military purposes is being gathered and processed for better decision making. Photogrammetry, area mapping, surveying, inspection, and reporting are just a few examples of remote sensing applications.
