Autonomous Platforms to Lighten a Warfighter’s Burden

Advantages of Photonic Chip Technology in Inertial Systems

QinetiQ Selects KVH’s Inertial Navigation System for Unmanned Ground Vehicle ‘Titan’

One of the many challenges facing engineers designing autonomous platforms is the need for the vehicle to determine its position, heading, and attitude accurately and repeatedly in all environments. When developing an autonomous platform meant to assist warfighters, accurate navigation and reliability are critical life-saving qualities. 

This case study explains:

  • The challenges of autonomous platform navigation in the battlefield 

  • How QinetiQ’s autonomous platform remains accurate and reliable with a single integrated Inertial Navigation System (INS)

  • How KVH’s capable GEO-FOG 3D Dual INS provides the orientation and positioning accuracy with the very low drift that allows the Titan and its payload to maintain its heading
