Gimballed EO/IR Systems
For a wide range of end-users, real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) information is critical to operations. Aircraft can be fitted with a sophisticated sensor suite consisting of electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) instruments, or other remote sensing systems on a two-axis gimbal to rapidly capture data over a broad area.

This note provides a detailed analysis for choosing the right GNSS/INS system for such applications, alongside other integration considerations that will determine total system performance. The error budget is derived and an example provided to demonstrate the impact of various design choices.
