VN-200 GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS)

January 5, 2013 5:16 pm | VectorNav Technologies | Products

The VN-200 product family is comprised of the world’s smallest & lightest, high performance GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) that combines an advanced GPS module with the latest in MEMS inertial & pressure sensor technology. Relying on Aerospace-grade navigation algorithms that run on-board the sensor, the VN-200 computes and outputs coupled position, velocity, and attitude estimates at an unparalled rate of 200 Hz. These sensors are well suited for applications operating under highly dynamic conditions and are also available in miniature, surface mount (OEM) or aluminum encased Rugged modules.
