IMU-CPT Tactical Grade Fiber Optic Gyros (FOG) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
NovAtel SPAN technology tightly couples NovAtel’s GNSS receiver technology with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). NovAtel markets a variety of IMUs from leading IMU manufacturers so you can select an IMU that delivers the accuracy or price point you need.
The IMU-CPT is designed to be paired with the NovAtel OEM6 line of receivers. It is comprised of Fiber Optic Gyros (FOG) and Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometers. FOGs offer exceptionally long life and stable performance compared with other similar gyro technologies.
- Fiber optic gyros and MEMS accelerometers
- Wheel sensor input for ground applications
- SPAN INS functionality
- Continuous, stable positioning
- Minimizes import/export issues
- Withstands harsh environments
- Easy integration with NovAtel’s OEM6series GNSS INS receivers
Paired with NovAtel’s OEM6 receiver, the IMU-CPT offers a fully integrated, tightly coupled GNSS and IMU system delivering the most satellite observations and the most accurate, continuous position, velocity and attitude solution possible. Further, the IMU-CPT is comprised entirely of commercial components, greatly minimizing cross border difficulties encountered with traditional GNSS INS systems.
Improve IMU-CPT Accuracy
Take advantage of NovAtel CORRECT with RTK as well as support for other satellite based augmentation systems such as L-Band or SBAS to improve real-time performance and accuracy. For more demanding applications, Inertial Explorer post-processing software from our Waypoint Products Group can be used to post-process IMU-CPT data and offers the highest level of accuracy with the system.
