RIEGL launches three airborne survey systems

RIEGL has released three airborne survey products, which are are designed to enhance sensor performances and capabilities in various segments, from terrestrial, to mobile and airborne applications.

The VQX-2 helicopter pod is designed for airborne data collection. It integrates a RIEGL laser scanner, a highperformance IMU/GNSS unit, and up to five cameras. It also can be easily mounted and dismounted onto UAVs.

The VQ-680 compact airborne lidar scanner OEM is designed to be integrated with large-format cameras or other sensors in complex hybrid system solutions.

The VUX-180-24 offers a wide field of view of 75º and a high pulse repetition rate of up to 2.4 MHz. These features – in combination with an increased scan speed of up to 800 lines per second – make it suitable for high-speed surveying missions and applications where an optimal line and point distribution is required.

Furuno introduces dual-band GNSS receiver chip

Furuno Electric Co. has released its dual-band GNSS receiver chip, eRideOPUS 9, which can achieve 50cm position accuracy without correction data.

The product is designed to provide absolute position information and can be used as a reference for lane identification, which is essential for services such as autonomous driving. It also serves as a reference for determining the final self-position through cameras, lidar and HD maps.

Inertial Labs receives SBIR Phase III contract

Inertial Labs has been awarded an SBIR Phase III contract by the Army Applications Laboratory of Army Futures Command. It supports Inertial Labs development, design, and fabrication of the Cannon Artillery Pointing and Sighting System (CAPSS) for potential use on the US Army’s Paladin and the Extended Range Cannon Artillery (ERCA) vehicles.

The CAPSS mission is to dramatically reduce weight on the target vehicle platforms by providing a digital replacement for the vehicle’s current panoramic telescope (PANTEL). The CAPSS prototype is being designed to replace the PANTEL physically. This state-of-the-art CAPSS system amalgamates a collection of cameras, inertial measurement units (IMUs), advanced electronics, and an intuitive tabletbased user interface.

Point One Navigation launches real-time INS

Point One Navigation has introduced the Atlas inertial navigation system (INS) designed for autonomous vehicles, mapping and other applications. It can provide users with ground-truth level accuracy in real-time, which can streamline engineering workflows, significantly reduce project costs and improve operational efficiency.

Enhancing GPS technology on Eurofighter

BAE Systems Digital GPS Anti-jam Receiver (DIGARTM) has been selected to continue into the next phase of the Phase 4 Enhancements (P4E) capability program on the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. DIGAR will boost the protection of the aircraft from GPS signal jamming, spoofing, and Radio Frequency (RF) interference, so that pilots can execute their missions in the most heavily contested RF environments.

DIGAR uses advanced antenna electronics, high-performance signal processing, and digital beamforming for significantly improved GPS signal reception and superior jamming immunity.

CHC Navigation launches Apache 3 Pro

CHC Navigation has launched the Apache 3 Pro, an advanced compact hydrographic drone designed for autonomous bathymetric surveys in shallow waters. It has lightweight carbon fiber hull, IP67 rating, and semirecessed motor.

ComNav introduces 3D laser scanning system

ComNav Technology has released the LS300 3D laser scanning measurement system. It utilizes SLAM technology, and advanced real time and mapping techniques. It operates autonomously, independent of GNSS positioning, which makes it ideal for harsh conditions in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Enhancing NATO Navy’s AUV Capabilities

L3Harris, Voyis and Wavefront collaborate to deliver advanced technology to enhance NATO Navy’s autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) capabilities. Its area of expertise is the development of AUVs for a variety of maritime applications. AUVs are designed to operate in harsh environments, including deep water and can be used for a range of missions, including search and rescue, surveillance, mine countermeasures and oceanography.

Seamless cm-level accuracy via satellite and cellular

Trimble announced stream switching – a new feature allowing farmers to seamlessly stream Trimble CenterPoint® RTX, RangePoint RTX and ViewPoint RTX, over IP or satellite. Available for farmers using a NAV-900 or NAV-500™ receiver, this new feature delivers less down time and performance comparable to RTK without the complexity of base stations.

Given the importance of uptime in farming operations, this solution was designed to provide farmers with the optimal GNSS corrections stream, delivered via IP or satellite, depending on signal strength. In areas prone to satellite cutoffs due to elevation changes or canopy, the signal switches to the modem and stays on IP. For regions with bad cellular connection, the streaming automatically switches to satellite.
