INS-U is a fully integrated INS, Attitude & Heading Reference System, IMU, & ADC high performance strapdown system that determines PNT information for any device on which it is mounted
Paeonian Springs, VA: Part of Inertial Labs’ new generation of GPS-Aided INS solutions, the INS-U utilizes a single antenna, multi-constellation U-Blox GNSS receiver. With access to GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and BeiDou, the INS-U can be used in a variety of GPS-enabled environments and is protected against spoofing and jamming. Additionally, the INS-U is comprised of two barometers, a miniature gyro-compensated fluxgate compass, and tri-axis temperature calibrated advanced MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes. These high-performance sensors, along with Inertial Labs’ new on-board sensor fusion filter, state of the art guidance and navigation algorithms, provide accurate position, velocity, and orientation of the device under measure.
Perhaps the most defining feature of the INS-U is its embedded ADC. An essential avionics component for modern UAV applications, an ADC outputs static & dynamic pressure, pressure altitude, calibrated & true airspeed, true angle of attack, rate of climb, and wind speed of the device under measure. This data, combined with inertial reference information, provides UAVs with accurate information about the unit and its relation to its environment.
By utilizing data from an INS, AHRS, IMU and ADC, the INS-U provides a complete navigation solution for UAV and Helicopter applications. The unit can use time-of-flight (ToF) aiding data from a ground station for long term GNSS-denied conditions as well as external position and heading so it can still output accurate PNT information regardless of the environment. The INS-U is a lightweight and compact solution with dimensions of 82 x 40 x 26 mm and a weight of less than 200 grams. This, along with an IP67 environmental enclosure, ensures that the INS-U can fit the environmental requirements and size and weight restrictions of a wide range of applications.
With over 20 years in the positioning and orientation sensor industry, Inertial Labs is growing its catalog of innovative solutions at the best value, smallest size, and lowest power consumption in their class. From commerce and industry to government, defense, and aerospace, Inertial Labs is at the forefront of developing and customizing products for exciting technologies, solving today’s problems, and unraveling those of tomorrow.
