GIMBAL POINTING

EO/IR SURVEILLANCE

Gimballed systems are one of the most common payloads oneverything from UAVs to marine vessels, enabling pointing of that payload independent of the vehicle attitude. For most gimbal pointing applications, including geo-referencing, the gimbal control system requires position data, which precludes a pure IMU or AHRS solution and requires a GNSS-aided option. This application section details the requirements for a GNSS/INS solution to enable open-loop pointing. Taking a look at maximum pointing error, error sources and calculating the error budget for the gimbal pointing solution

GIMBAL POINTING

SATCOM ON THE MOVE

The need to maintain persistent mobile communications regardless of location in the world has driven significant growth in Satellite Communications (SATCOM) and particularly for SATCOM on-the-move (SOTM) products and service offerings. The key challenge for any SATCOM system is maintaining the line-of-sight (LOS) connection with the target satellite.

DIRECT GEOREFERENCING

LIDAR MAPPING

For LiDAR mapping to produce accurate georeferenced point cloud data it is vitally important that the GNSS/INS solution not only have suitably accurate position and attitude data, but that the sensor be aligned and bore-sited correctly. A suitably configured Mobile Mapping System is able to produce data that rivals traditional techniques with additional advantages of speed and safety.

DIRECT GEOREFERENCING

AERIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Precise photogrammetry relies on cameras integrated with high precision GNSS/INS in combination with post-processing software to create an optimized SWaP solution that can digitize vast areas when used on aerial vehicles. Careful consideration of component selection, mounting, time synchronization and lense calibration can produce survey grade mapping results that rival traditional techniques.
