Essential Elements of Military Inertial Navigation Systems

By Mike Ball / 18 Oct 2021

KVH military INS whitepaperKVH Industries has released a whitepaper that discusses essential elements for military INS (inertial navigation systems) and explains why these attributes are so important. The whitepaper also highlights how high-performance fiber optic gyro (FOG)-based inertial systems can deliver superior navigation assurance and reliability for platforms such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles).

The essential elements discussed in the whitepaper include:

  • Accuracy and reliability – vital for challenging conditions and situational awareness
  • Redundancy – GNSS-aided inertial navigation and sensor fusion
  • The ability to counter jamming and spoofing actions
  • Easy integration into existing systems
  • Rugged durability in harsh military environments

High-performance inertial navigation systems for military applications must be able to survive a variety of challenging environments to operate successfully under battlefield conditions. To find out more, download the full whitepaper from KVH’s website.
