VN-210 GNSS-Aided INS

The VN-210 is a high-performance Inertial Navigation System (INS) that combines Tactical Grade MEMS inertial sensors, a high-sensitivity GNSS receiver, and advanced Kalman filtering algorithms to provide optimal estimates of position, velocity, and orientation for industrial and military applications.
VN-210 Product Family


Each individual VN-210 sensor undergoes a robust calibration and acceptance testing process at VectorNav's manufacturing facility. VectorNav regularly conducts comprehensive testing on all products to verify continued conformance to all performance specifications.
