ATLANS, the new georeferencing and orientation system
ATLANS, a new cost-effective georeferencing and orientation system , has been designed specifically for land and airborne mapping applications being conducted within a limited budget. Significantly, the unit is ITAR-free.
The user gets a compact, lightweight gyrocompass and motion sensor that consumes very little power and yet provides all of the required data for demanding navigation, stabilization and control applications. ATLANS can be easily integrated with standard GNSS and DMI systems and is easily combined with most commonly used flight management, satellite tracking and mobile imaging systems. All of the interface and computing electronics are contained within a single housing that also features an embedded RTK GPS board for centimetre accuracy performance.
ATLANS is based on fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) technology, heavily developed by iXBlue over a period of 25 years and now incorporated into a range of high-performance positioning and navigational aids for use in civil, defence and space applications. Being solid state and having no moving parts, FOGs have become renowned for their ruggedness and stability, and for their extended and maintenance-free service lives.
