The xNAV500 is a compact, lightweight GPS-aided inertial navigation system, perfectly suited for all applications where size and weight as well as performance matter. It measures position (< 90cm), heading (0.15°), roll/pitch (0.05°) and much more in real-time. Your data can also be post-processed later. It is ideal for use on UAVs and other weight constrained applications.
Please see below for an overview of the systems.
Small, compact, lightweight
This product is all about size and accuracy. Available from just 365 g, the xNAV fills the gap between light-weight inertial systems that are not accurate enough and accurate inertial systems that are not small enough. In UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) the xNAV is accurate enough to give about 1 m pixel accuracy at a height of 1000 m but without dominating the weight allowance of the aircraft.
Tight-coupling, differential GNSS, dual GNSS heading and, of course, fantastic inertial sensors all combined to give great performance. The tight-coupling ensures GNSS measurements continue to be used in difficult conditions. Differential GNSS, either post-processed from a standard RINEX file or logged in real time with a base station, make it easy to achieve sub-metre position accuracy. Combined forward-backwards (in time) processing and the odometer input (for wheel based vehicle use) minimizes the drift when GNSS is not available to 2.5 m in 1 minute or 1 km, surpassing many larger and more expensive systems.
