  • Quality and Quantity — A Detailed Look at the Inertial Labs Kernel-100

    The Kernel-100 is a compact and lightweight Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Digital Tilt Sensor (DTS) that consists of precision tri-axis MEMS accelerometers and tri-axis MEMS gyroscopes. This industrial grade IMU measures linear accelerations and angular rates with low noise and good...
  • The Inertial Labs miniAHRS and Directional Surveillance

    A directional survey is a survey method that can be used to map a variety of underground drilling applications. Directional surveys are used to map a planned underground route by using aiding data provided from any combination of directional survey stations. Directional survey stations serve as...
  • The Inertial Labs INS-D-OEM with Spoofing Protection

    Satellite constellations use RF signals to transmit information to GNSS receivers. These signals contain information on the satellite ephemeris, clock bias parameters, almanac, satellite health status and other information. Receivers use these signals to compute position (and timing) information...
  • Magnetometers Calibrations and the Inertial Labs INS-P

    Magnetometers measure the direction, strength, or relative change of a magnetic field at a particular location. Though phonetically complex, magnetometers can be common devices used in everyday life such as compasses and metal detectors. In general, there are two basic types of survey...
  • Point Cloud Generation for Mapping and Scanning Industries Using the INS-B

    A point cloud is created by scanning an area with a 3D Laser Scanner. This scan is then imported into post-processing software (unless desired accuracy is obtained in real-time) where errors are removed. After processing the data, modeling software is used where the clouds can either be...
  • GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) for Remote Sensing

    The latest progress in laser and microprocessor technologies have ignited an emerging generation of affordable and compact mapping solutions which are being employed by a number of businesses across industries including construction, agriculture, surveying, mining, and more. Nowadays remote...
  • Marine Navigation and the Development of the Motion Reference Unit

    Today’s marine navigation equipment must be robust, versatile and built for long term usage With the marine industry being exceptionally tight on time constraints, money and man power all components that go into voyages, testing, and navigation must minimize error at all cost...
  • Twenty Years in the Making: The Inertial Labs Robust and Modular Kalman Filter

    Sensor fusion plays a large role in any device that is attempting to product estimated, quantifiable data. Sensor fusion is the ability to bring together inputs from multiple sensors to producer a single model whose result is more accurate than that of a the individual inputs alone. There are...
  • U.S. Air Force Antenna Reference Unit employs Inertial Labs AHRS

    A shift towards a new generation of advanced Command Post Terminals (CPT) is happening gradually on several frontiers. This new generation, known as the Family of Advanced Beyond-Line-of- Sight Terminals (FAB-T) is expanding upon existing foundations by adding new software and hardware. The...
  • How Drones are Transforming Construction and Infrastructure Inspection

    Ensuring our infrastructure is running, and our job and construction sites are safe should be a top priority. However, the maintenance and inspections needed is inherently dangerous and often time-consuming and repetitive, making drones instrumental and valuable tools. Drones can capture all...
