iXblue has launched a new range of FOG (fiber opic gyro)-based INS (inertial navigation systems) designed for use with land and aerial mobile mapping platforms such as UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).
The Atlans Series is a scalable range of North-seeking and North-keeping INS, based on iXblue’s proprietary FOG technology, that provides highly accurate positioning up to 0.01m under a variety of demanding conditions, including within GNSS-denied environments such as urban canyons, mountainous regions and forested areas.
Atlans Series INS are easily and rapidly integrated into any suitable unmanned platform, offering efficient “set-and-forget” operations for a wide range of land and air applications including asset inventory, pavement condition survey, vehicle automation, HD mapping, airborne surveys, and precision pointing.
Marine Slingue, VP of iXblue, commented: “Our existing high-grade Atlans A7 INS had already been adopted as the preferred georeferencing solution by leading U.S. companies operating in the pavement condition survey industry. Having identified the high potential of our technology for other land and mobile mapping applications, we decided to develop a complete range of scalable INS that each meet the specific requirements of every applications. With our new Atlans Series INS, we are now bringing the unrivaled georeferencing accuracy performance offered by the FOG technology to all land and air mapping applications, enabling robust and uninterrupted data-acquisition operations.”
