VN-300 Dual Antenna GNSS/INS
The VN-300 is a miniature, high-performance Dual Antenna GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) (about the size of a quarter) that provides GPS heading and roll or pitch backed by MEMS 3-axis sensors for an off-the-shelf, high-performance inertial navigation sensing solution. With MEMS inertial sensors, two high-sensitivity GNSS receivers, and advanced Kalman filtering algorithms,, the VN-300 provides optimal estimates of position, velocity, and orientation. By utilizing two separate GNSS receivers and antennas, the VN-300 enables accurate heading measurements without reliance on vehicle dynamics or magnetic sensors, providing outstanding performance under both static and dynamic conditions.
Small Form Factor
At about the size of a postage stamp, the VN-300 SMD requires only a single 3.2-5.5V power supply, and can be directly embedded into a users electronics. Interface with the VN-300 SMD is made easy by using either the serial 3V TTL (UART) or the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI).
- Size: 24 x 22 x 3 mm
- Power: 185 mA @ 3.3 V
- Mass: 5 g
Building on VectorNavs VN-100 IMU/AHRS and VN-200 GPS/INS line of miniature inertial sensors, the VN-300 enables a wider range of applications by incorporating GPS compassing techniques, which provide for accurate GPS-based heading determination in static conditions.
- The VN-300 is encased in a precision anodized aluminum enclosure for easy integration into a wide variety of applications.
- With a size of only 45 x 44 x 11 mm and a weight of 30 grams, the VN-300 is the smallest commercially available industrial grade dual antenna GPS/INS.
