Founded in 2008, we began with the idea that our expertise in aerospace guidance, navigation, and control could be applied to the latest advancements in inertial and GNSS technology, resulting in products that achieve unprecedented performance in
the smallest possible footprint.
That idea has led us to produce solutions that redefine what's possible in today's inertial navigation technology- technology you can use to out-engineer your competition and succeed in a demanding marketplace.
Headquartered in Dallas, TX, USA, VectorNav maintains an AS9100-certified, 45,000 ft2 (4200 m2) facility, with the capacity to produce and deliver tens of thousands of units each year to our worldwide customer base. With proven solutions across a wide range of markets - SATCOM to robotics, missiles to ISR systems - VectorNav is your trusted partner in inertial navigation.
Since our founding, we have been guided by one mission:
This mission informs the engineering decisions we make, and the industry-leading algorithms we have developed. We do not relegate it in the pursuit of any other ambition. That singular commitment to our mission has led us to produce inertial navigation solutions that provide unrivaled performance to size and capability that delivers under the most challenging conditions.
We engineer for the edge cases. Too many companies tout their capabilities under ideal test conditions - we deliver performance for real-world conditions.
We make our devices smaller so you can think bigger. Size, weight, power, and cost savings usually come with a catch. With VectorNav, they are advantages you can use to design innovative solutions.
All VectorNav products are backed by the industry’s most customer-focused, robust, and responsive support ecosystem. Count on VectorNav's support from product concept design to end-of-life - through every challenge you know of, and every challenge you don’t.
We out-think and out-engineer the competition. At VectorNav, we are passionate about inertial navigation. That passion, combined with the experience we have gathered from supporting hundreds of applications, results in unparalleled solutions that address your most challenging navigation requirements.
We know that for you to be successful, you need to have the confidence that every system you field performs within requirements, system after system, year after year. To achieve this, we make ruggedness and dependability a design requirement, to deliver inertial navigation systems that you can rely on in the most demanding conditions. We extend our commitment to quality throughout our production processes, to ensure consistency across product delivery, part after part, so you can have
confidence in your navigation system.
Our AS9100D and ISO 9001 certifications are a reflection of these ways in which we commit to Quality across our company and will continue to do while you remain a VectorNav customer, employee, or partner.
We provide you the competitive edge through superior inertial navigation solutions.
Whether you are engineering cutting edge technology or delivering mission-critical systems, knowing you can rely on your navigation solution means everything. At VectorNav, we deliver inertial navigation solutions that you can depend on to complete your objective and out-engineer your competitors.
Partner with VectorNav and leverage that value to succeed in your market.
