Inertial Labs presents new GNSS-aided navigation solution

Inertial Labs has announced the launch of its latest product, the INS-FI. This GPS-aided Inertial Navigation System (INS) represents the pinnacle of over 20 years of expertise in developing and supplying INS solutions for land, marine and aerial platforms worldwide. Inertial Labs is a leading innovator in navigation and positioning solutions.

The INS-FI is built using Tactical-grade Fibre Optic Gyroscope (FOG) technology, with the aim to develop one of the most advanced and reliable INS on the market. Its IP67 rating signifies that it is super ruggedized and shielded against EMC/EMI, ensuring exceptional durability and performance even in the harshest environments.

Advanced features and algorithms

The fully integrated INS-FI includes an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that combines Fibre Optic Gyroscopes and MEMS Accelerometers. Additionally, it features an all-constellations GNSS receiver with multiple bands (supporting GPS, Glonass, Galileo, QZSS, Beidou, and Navic). This sophisticated system provides precise horizontal and vertical positions, velocity, and absolute orientation (Heading, Pitch, and Roll) for any mounted device. It maintains high accuracy for both stationary and dynamic applications.

The INS-FI has several key features. It includes a high-performance FOG IMU, which measures GNSS-free heading (True North) with less than 0.5-degree error. It also provides accurate positioning, delivering horizontal and vertical positions with approximately 0.1% error of distance travelled for land applications and a five nautical mile per hour drift for aerospace (UAV) applications without a GNSS signal. Additionally, the INS-FI is fully compatible with Inertial Labs' ADC (Air Data Computer), VINS (Visual Inertial Navigation Systems), and SAMC (Stand-Alone Magnetic Compass).

The INS-FI incorporates Inertial Labs' latest onboard sensor fusion filter, the most advanced navigation and guidance algorithms, and high-end calibration software. This integration ensures optimal performance and reliability, making the INS-FI an invaluable tool for diverse navigation needs.

Jamie Marraccini, CEO of Inertial Labs, commented: "The INS-FI represents a significant milestone in our mission to provide superior navigation solutions. With its advanced FOG technology and robust design, the INS-FI sets a new standard for performance and reliability in the industry. We are excited to offer this groundbreaking product to our customers worldwide."
