  • The patent-pending VN-200 device enables embedded navigation in components with a small footprint
  • The VN-200 consolidates INS in a small package and is ideal for small applications such as UAV payloads where it can help stabilize camera platforms and keep it pointing in the right direction
  • It is tiny enough to be placed in the camera itself
  • The device has an onboard extended Kalman filter running at 200 Hz, coupled position, velocity, and attitude estimates, and dynamic accuracy better than .25 degrees in pitch/roll and .75 degrees in heading
  • The VN-200 also is compatible with external GPS pressure or magnetic measurements and comes with a temperature range of -40 ?C to +85 ?C
  • The surface-mount package 30-pin LGA is 22 x 24 x 3 millimeters and weighs 3 grams
  • The rugged package is 36 x 34 x 9.5 millimeters and weighs 14 grams
  • The VN-200 development tool set has a sensor explorer GUI that enables users to display sensor output as a 3D object, graph inertial data, configure sensor settings, and perform
