Inertial Sense has announced the availability of a micro-sized rugged version of its combined GNSS-INS module, which has an onboard GNSS receiver as well as a fully fused inertial navigation solution.

Designed to fill autonomous vehicle and sensing needs, the module is also available in AHRS/IMU versions.

At 10 grams and with 1 x 1-inch footprint, the solution provides accuracy of 0.1-degree roll/pitch and 0.3-degree dynamic heading. It is also ITAR-free module.

The modules represent 15 years of inertial navigation and motion measurement experience, according to the company.

“When I set out on this journey to provide an accurate and low-cost navigation solution, I wanted to produce a product that engineers could purchase off the shelf, hassle free,” said company founder Walt Johnson. “In my past as a UAV engineer, I was always looking for ways to save myself time and money. It’s all about convenience. There is no need to spend time choosing IMU sensors and writing the algorithms to fuse navigation data. We provide it all for you.”
