iXblue launches new cost-effective range of FOG-based INS
iXblue, which specializes in the design and manufacturing of navigation and georeferencing solutions, announced the launch of a new range of cost-effective FOG-based INS dedicated to land and air mobile mapping applications, the Atlans Series.
Based on the company’s Fiber-Optic Gyroscope (FOG) technology, the Atlans Series is a scalable range of North seeking and North keeping Inertial Navigation Systems (INS). The company says that the new series provides FOG performance to the full spectrum of land and air mobile mapping applications and offer highly accurate positioning (up to 0.01 m) in all conditions, including within GNSS-denied environments such as urban canyons, mountainous, or forests areas.
“Our existing high-grade Atlans A7 INS had already been adopted as the preferred georeferencing solution by leading U.S. companies operating in the pavement condition survey industry,” said Marine Slingue, VP iXblue, Inc. “Having identified the high potential of our technology for other land and mobile mapping applications, we decided to develop a complete range of scalable INS that each meet the specific requirements of every applications. With our new Atlans Series INS, we are now bringing the unrivaled georeferencing accuracy performance offered by the FOG technology to all land and air mapping applications, enabling robust and uninterrupted data-acquisition operations.”
The company says that the new INS is easy to install on all platforms and offers efficient “set-and-forget” operations for a wide range of land and air applications. These include asset inventory, pavement condition survey, vehicle automation, HD mapping, automotive testing, ground-truth, airborne surveys (UAVs, planes, helicopters), as well as precision pointing.
