Rugged and Robust: the RT3000 v4 DO-160

Company News April 16, 2024

Ideal for aerospace and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) applications, the RT3000 v4 DO-160 offers centimetre-level position accuracy, leading sensor fusion capabilities, and the widest DO-160 coverage of any MEMS GNSS/INS on the market.   

Like the RT3000 v4, the RT3000 v4 DO-160 uses our most advanced MEMS-based IMU technology and survey-grade GNSS receivers to provide FOG-like navigation performance. On top of that, the RT3000 v4 DO-160 is certified against 18 of the 23 tests in the DO-160 standard, making it ideal for aerospace applications and other hazardous environments like mines.




Why choose the RT3000 v4 DO-160?

Widest DO-160 coverage on the market 
The RT3000 v4 DO-160 has passed 18 of the 23 tests in the DO-160 standard, making it most durable MEMS GNSS/INS available on the market today. 


IP67 rated housing
For additional protection against water and dust, the housing of the RT3000 v4 DO-160 is IP67 rated, increasing its suitability for harsh environments. 

Sensor fusion as standard 
The OxTS GAD Interface included with the RT3000 v4 DO-160 enables you to feed data from sensors including radar and camera odometry into your GNSS/INS for additional accuracy.  

No need to deal with costly and cumbersome export controls. Ship your RT3000 v4 DO-160 globally without the need for export licenses. 

Lowdynamics warm up 
The RT3000v4 DO-160 will get to specification within three minutes of low-dynamics movement so you don’t need lots of time and space for high-dynamics manoeuvres before each data collection. 

Our highest performing INS yet! 
Combining two survey-grade GNSS receivers with OxTS’ latest IMU10 inertial technology, the RT3000 v4 DO-160 delivers uninterrupted position, orientation, and dynamics in all environments.
