Camera Stabilization

The high pointing accuracy and low latency of the VN-200 makes it well suited for airborne camera stabilization applications. Utilizing the GPS and pressure sensor measurements together with the inertial sensor measurements, the onboard INS algorithm estimates absolute heading to better than 1 degree in yaw, pitch and roll in dynamic environments.

Marine Antenna Stabilization

Maritime VSAT satellite communication require stabilized antennas that remain pointed at the satellite in order to ensure continuous data transmittal. Regulations require that pointing accuracy remain better than 0.5 degrees to maintain active transmission. This requirement demands highly accurate, precise and low latency attitude and angular rate measurements. The dynamic motion common to rough sea conditions makes this a difficult task for most industrial grade MEMS-based inertial navigation systems. The VN-200 GPS assisted inertial navigation algorithm is capable of compensating for dynamic acceleration induced from the motion of the vessel while maintaining accurate orientation measurements. With a full filter state update rate of 200 Hz, the VN-200 provides extremely low latency attitude and angular rate measurements, critical for closed-loop control.

Unmanned Vehicles

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

The VN-200 provides exceptional performance for autonomous control of aerial based platforms. With an update rate of 200 Hz, high bandwidth, low-latency position and attitude measurements can be directly connected to the necessary control loops. The VN-200 calibration procedures ensure a high accuracy pitch and roll solution relative to the horizon while the onboard barometric pressure sensors provide autonomous aircraft with a more precise ability to hold altitude. The high sample rate on all of the individual sensors reduce impact from unwanted vibration.

Motorsports

The VN-200 is well suited for the dynamic environments and maneuvers present in motorsports, racing and vehicle tracking. For automotive applications, determining heading using measurements from magnetic sensors is not reliable as it is very difficult to perform an accurate hard/soft iron calibration, and the effect of nearby vehicles distorts the magnetic field observed by the magnetometer, degrading the solution. The VN-200 INS algorithm is capable of estimating heading without requiring input from a magnetic sensor by directly observing and correlating the changes in velocity from the GPS to the inertial sensors.
