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.
