Honeywell launches new navigation systems
Honeywell has announced that it has launched two new resilient navigation systems: the Honeywell Compact Inertial Navigation System and Honeywell Radar Velocity System. These systems, along with Honeywell partner InfiniDome’s Anti-Jamming system, GPSdome, are designed for commercial and military customers needing reliable navigation solutions with low size, weight and power. The systems will provide multiple layers of protection that allow continued operations even in Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) challenged or denied environments.
The new Honeywell Compact Inertial Navigation System is about the size of a deck of cards and uses tactical-grade inertial sensors to provide accurate position information to commercial and military customers. This second layer of resiliency provides the ability to navigate during shorter GNSS outages. This is especially useful in urban canyons where GNSS availability is intermittent or in strong jamming environments where anti-jamming systems are not enough.
Honeywell Radar Velocity System is a small, lightweight, low-power radar-based navigation-aiding system. This third layer of resiliency provides the ability to navigate during longer GNSS outages. In addition to this, Honeywell is also developing multiple alternative navigation systems to enable our customers to continue safe and reliable operations in GNSS challenged or denied environment.
