The last few years have seen a dramatic increase of UAV LiDAR, promising qualitative and affordable data for geospatial companies. Airsight entered the market with NextCore, a highly accurate yet cost effective system.
Introducing Kinematica V1.2, the web based GNSS/INS post processing software that allows users to process raw GNSS and inertial data after collection and achieve higher accuracy results than is possible in real time.
Kinematica V1.2 Highlights:
Wild Oats XI is an Australian maxi yacht, most famous for being the race record holder and a nine-times line honours winner of the Sydney to Hobart Race. Her helmsman, Mark Richards, is recognised as the race’s most successful skipper.
AMZ’s latest car, named after the famous Swiss mountain pass, weighs only 181 kilograms. With 156kw, the power-to-weight ratio is 0.86 kW/kg, a value that exceeds even supercars and gives the prototype its tremendous acceleration. AMZ has selected Advanced Navigation Spatial Dual, a ruggedized miniature GPS aided INS and AHRS that provides accurate position, velocity, acceleration and orientation.
“Rapid development of innovative and complex systems like Gremlins drives us to identify and use system components with the highest reputation for reliability and performance. We are proud to be working, once again, with Advanced Navigation on another one of our priority demonstration programs." said Tim Keeter, Deputy Program Manager and Chief Engineer for Gremlins at Dynetics.
Advanced Navigation will be exhibiting at AUVSI Xponential in May 2018. AUVSI Xponential is a trade show focused on cutting edge commercial & defence unmanned technology. It will be held between 1-3 May at the Colorado Convention Centre, Denver, USA.
Advanced Navigation has released their new subsea acoustic positioning transponder.
Subsonus Tag is a low cost acoustic positioning transponder that operates with the Subsonus USBL. It was developed to provide a low cost, fully integrated positioning capability to users across a broad array of applications.
Subsonus Tag features an integrated battery and a revolutionary acoustic processing architecture that allows it to operate for up to 18 months on one charge.
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation has recently developed the Phenomobile. The Phenomobile is a phenomic crop monitoring system which offers a non-destructive and high throughput method of measuring crop health and performance.
Advanced Navigation’s Spatial system plays a key role in the operation of the Phenomobile allowing autonomous control and geo-referencing.
Advanced Navigation will be exhibiting at Oceanology International in March 2018. Oceanology International is a world leading ocean technology marine science exhibition and conference which will be held in London, UK.
Olex has successfully integrated Advanced Navigation's Spatial INS into their hydrographic survey vessels. Spatial is a ruggedized miniature GPS aided inertial navigation system and AHRS that provides accurate position, velocity, acceleration and orientation. It combines temperature calibrated accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers and a pressure sensor with an advanced GNSS receiver.
Advanced Navigation has recently expanded existing operations in the United States of America.
This development will result in more direct and dedicated Advanced Navigation sales people who will be better able to service the market. Investing in operations across the USA will result in faster service, more accurate information and more personalised business transactions.
Advanced Navigation has announced the release of their GNSS Compass product. The GNSS Compass is an all in one dual antenna GNSS/INS that provides accurate heading, position and velocity at a very low price point. It is a plug and play unit that has NMEA0183, NMEA2000 and Ethernet interfaces. It is wheelmark certified for use on commercial marine vessels.
Advanced Navigation has released a document containing detailed results of tests demonstrating the performance of their Subsonus USBL. Several tests were performed under a range of different conditions. The document is available for download from the Documentation section of the Subsonus product page.
Advanced Navigation has announced the release of their GNSS/INS post processing software Kinematica. Kinematica is easy to use web based GNSS/INS post processing software that allows users to process raw GNSS and inertial data after collection and achieve higher accuracy position, velocity and orientation than is possible in real time.
Advanced Navigation has announced the release of their new Motus MEMS IMU. Motus is a miniature ultra high accuracy MEMS IMU offering FOG level performance of 0.4 degrees/hour bias stability in a package that is just over 1 cubic inch in size and weighs only 26 grams.
Advanced Navigation has announced the release of their interface and logging unit. The interface and logging unit (ILU) is a device server that interfaces to any of Advanced Navigation's systems and provides data logging, a web interface, a time synchronisation server and a wide variety of different industry standard data input/output options.
Advanced Navigation is pleased to announce the release of their new GNSS/INS Spatial FOG Dual. Spatial FOG Dual is a new variant of the popular Spatial FOG product that features the addition of high accuracy dual antenna heading. The product is targeted at survey applications which can benefit greatly from the increased heading accuracy especially under low dynamics conditions.
Advanced Navigation has announced the release of their air data unit. The air data unit measures pitot airspeed and barometric altitude pressure on fixed wing aircraft. It can be used standalone for air data or connected to one of Advanced Navigation's Spatial series of GPS/INS units for significantly enhanced dead reckoning performance in fixed wing aircraft.
Carnegie Wave energy has integrated Advanced Navigation's Spatial Dual into their CETO wave energy power plant. CETO is currently the only operating wave energy power plant in the world and the first ever to be connected to the grid.
Advanced Navigation has released a free program for testing their inertial pedestrian navigation technology currently in the final stages of development. The program can be used to post process data from a leg mounted Spatial unit for indoor pedestrian navigation.
Advanced Navigation has released a version of their Spatial Manager software for Android devices. Spatial Manager is the software for interfacing with Advanced Navigation's Spatial series of GPS/INS systems.
From all the team at Advanced Navigation, we would like to wish all of our customers and suppliers a very merry christmas and a happy new year. We look forward to doing business with you again in the new year.
