Why use a survey-grade Inertial Navigation System for Unmanned Aerial Systems ?

This 10-minute presentation, provides an entry-level explanation of how and why GNSS-aided inertial navigations systems are used on UAV platforms to capture both flight dynamic data and for georeferencing purposes. 

Why use an inertial navigation system on a mobile mapping vehicle?

GNSS receivers provide accurate position and velocity measurements, but can’t provide all the measurements required to fully georeference mobile mapping equipment. This 10-minute presentation explains how and why GNSS-aided inertial 

OxTS xNAV550 integration with Z+F LiDAR scanners

The OxTS xNAV550 GNSS-aided inertial system and Z+F PROFILER® 9012 were mounted on a vehicle roof and connected to each other using a custom interface cable. This provided an accurate 

Why use a survey-grade Inertial Navigation System on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle?
