Navigation system is compact, lightweight and low-costInertial Aerosystems is introducing a new low-cost miniature navigation system that is capable of positioning within 5m (SEP). Designated the MMQ-G, it is manufactured by USA-based Systron Donner Inertial. This product is an innovative combination of a solid-state inertial measurement unit and a Jupiter PICO (GPS) receiver. The MMQ-G's MEMS quartz rate sensors and accelerometers make an IMU (inertial measurement unit) that is tightly coupled with the Jupiter's 12-channel Coarse/Acquisition (C/P) code GPS engine to provide a highly accurate navigation system. The MMQ-G also accepts three-axis magnetometer data, which it uses as a heading reference in order to improve heading stability.

Weighing less than 227g and measuring 47.6 x 47.6 x 64.8mm, it is useful where weight and space have to be saved. With low power consumption of less than 5W at 12V DC, it has an operating temperature range of -40 to 71degC. Equipped with an RS-232 digital interface, the MMQ-G uses the established C-MIGITS 111 message-based output format.

This versatile product has a wide variety of commercial and military tracking and stabilisation applications, including targets and drones, antennas and surveillance systems, robotics, UAVs and other manned and unmanned vehicles, transportation and railroads.
