VectorNav Technologies, manufacturer of embedded navigation solutions, has introduced the Tactical Series, a next generation family of high-performance Inertial Navigation Systems (INS).

The announcement was made at AUVSI’s Xponential 2016, being held this week in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Built on a common tactical grade proprietary MEMS inertial sensing core, the Tactical Series includes the VN-110 inertial measurement unit and attitude heading reference system (IMU/AHRS), the VN-210 GPS-aided INS (GPS/INS), and the VN-310 dual-antenna GPS/INS.

The Tactical Series leverages VectorNav’s navigation algorithm expertise and extensive experience in integrating its industrial series products into a broad range of airborne, marine and ground-based platforms. As a result, the Tactical Series offers the same functionality and features as Industrial Series for integrators of SWaP-C (size, weight, power and cost) constrained manned and unmanned systems.

Designed and engineered at VectorNav’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas, the Tactical Series takes advantage of the latest developments in solid state MEMS technology to incorporate a 3-axis gyro with <1˚/hr in-run bias stability, leading to an attitude accuracy of 1 to 2 mrad. In addition to the improved IMU core, the Tactical Series enclosure is designed to DO-160G standards and rated IP68 for deployment in harsh and extreme environments.

“The Tactical Series is the culmination of many years of development effort and collaboration with systems integrators across a broad range of industries,” said VectorNav President John Brashear. “We have combined our digital filtering expertise and experience in solving the challenging navigation requirements of customers worldwide to develop what is truly a next generation navigation solution.”

The Tactical Series addresses navigation needs for a variety of unmanned applications and will be on display at VectorNav’s booth (#1043) at XPONENTIAL 2016 in New Orleans, May 3-5.
