KVH has released a case study outlining how its GEO-FOG 3D Dual Inertial Navigation System (INS) has been used to enable autonomous navigation capabilities for QinetiQ’s Titan UGV (unmanned ground vehicle). Titan is a multi-mission, reconfigurable platform that provides support for dismounted infantry operations, undertaking tasks such as sentry patrol and carrying heavy equipment and supplies.
The case study covers:
- The challenge of determining accurate, repeatable position, heading, and attitude for a UGV
- The stringent specifications required by QinetiQ, including sub-1 degree heading and pitch and roll accuracy
- How KVH’s GEO-FOG 3D Dual INS solved Titan’s navigation challenges
The ability to determine position, heading, and attitude accurately and repeatedly in all environments is crucial for autonomous platforms and can be a life-saving capability for warfighting applications. To find out more, download the full case study from KVH’s website.
