Firmware Update for 3DMGQ7 GNSS/INS

The latest firmware 1.1.02 is now available for Parker’s MicroStrain 3DM-GQ7 GNSS inertial navigation sensor, enabling new features and performance improvements, including spoofing and jamming alerts By Sarah Simpson / 13 Dec 2022

Parker’s latest GQ7 firmware update 1.1.02 enhances the performance of the 3DMGQ7 GNSS/INS, an all-in-one navigation solution featuring centimeter-level position accuracy.

The update enables the 3DMGQ7 to operate even better in harsh environments and provides alerts for spoofing and jamming – both ideal for UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) applications.

Enhancements and added features in the latest release include:

NMEA – Provides compatibility with existing customer hardware that consumes “industry-standard” NMEA outputs

SBAS – Provides 0.6m or better position accuracy when not using RTK (improves all units from ~1.5m)

Vibration Rejection – Automatically rejects undesirable vehicle-induced vibrations, resulting in more accurate PVA (position, velocity, attitude) estimates in harsh environments

Spoofing and Jamming Indication – Alerts user when spoofing or jamming is detected and assists in antenna installation in challenging EMI environments

The 3DMGQ7 is equipped with dual multiband GNSS receivers, low noise and low drift MEMS inertial sensors, and a robust adaptive Kalman filter.

Paired with Parker’s 3DMRTK Modem and SensorCloud RTK corrections service, the 3DMGQ7 GNSS/INS offers a complete out-of-the-box advanced navigation sensor for drones, unmanned vehicle navigation, robotics and autonomous vehicle applications, providing outstanding performance in unpredictable conditions.
