ATLANS, a New Cost-effective Georeferencing and Orientation System from iXBlue

The user gets a compact, lightweight gyrocompass and motion sensor that consumes very little power and yet provides all of the required data for demanding navigation, stabilization and control applications. ATLANS can be easily integrated with standard GNSS and DMI systems and is easily combined with most commonly used flight management, satellite tracking and mobile imaging systems. All of the interface and computing electronics are contained within a single housing that also features an embedded RTK GPS board for centimetre accuracy performance.

ATLANS is based on fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) technology, heavily developed by iXBlue over a period of 25 years and now incorporated into a range of high-performance positioning and navigational aids for use in civil, defence and space applications. Being solid state and having no moving parts, FOGs have become renowned for their ruggedness and stability, and for their extended and maintenance-free service lives.

Benoit Kerouanton, product manager, said, “We have spent a great deal of effort over the years developing FOG technology, not just to improve its performance and reliability but to get us to a position where we can provide simple to use, highly practical systems at very competitive prices. ATLANS capitalizes strongly on this work. It is a small, high-performance unit which comes at a price that will make it a very attractive option for users pursuing a range of UAV and LIDAR mapping, digital imaging and hyperspectral sensing applications.”
