The Geodetics Geo-Pointer is a high-accuracy, real-time heading system for dynamic platforms based on GPS. The system utilizes the relative positions between two GPS antennae mounted on a platform to compute precise heading and pitch information. Applications include heading and pitch for manned and unmanned air, sea and ground vehicles, and robotics. The Geo-Pointer is powered by Geodetics’ Epoch-by-Epoch® instantaneous differential GPS technology.
 
Geo-Pointer Features
  • Determines attitude of any rigid structure to which it is attached
  • Completely autonomous — no external reference is needed for attitude
  • Not sensitive to magnetic field
  • Complements inertial guidance systems in that there are no long term drifts
  • .1 degree accuracy (depending on antenna separation)
  • Small footprint: 25 cubic inches
  • Light weight: 15.8 oz
  • Internal TDMA datalink optional
  • Two RS-232 ports and one Ethernet port
  • 4 GB on-board data logging of all raw and solution data
  • Powered by precise instantaneous network (PIN) positioning, based on Geodetics’ Epoch-by-Epoch® technology, a new network-based real-time methodology not requiring multi-epoch initialization and re-initialization
  • Mil-spec ruggedization
  • On board end-user application support
  • Can be configured to provide high-accuracy position information as well as heading and pitch
Attitude determination applications include correcting for angular deflections of a platform engaged in sonar sounding, radar imaging, optical imaging, pointing, docking, etc.
