Canopus Compact Inertial Navigation System

Compact and Robust Inertial Navigation System with best-in-class performance.

Canopus inertial navigation systems are compact, rugged and light-weight AHRS and INS-GPS for airborne applications as well as other emerging applications like autonomous vehicles, robotics etc. Being compact in size, these systems are highly recommended for applications where space is a constraint. Use of extended Kalman filter assures best-in-class MEMS performance in dynamic environments. These systems integrate air data input, barometer, low-bias instability gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometer for precise and seamless navigation experience.
