Customized portable INS/GPS for use in flight test

Existing INS/GPS equipment had to be replaced due to elements reaching service life and the limitations induced by sensor technology of almost 10 years old (very low bandwidths and accuracy). The current system includes a MEMS-based Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), is portable being able to be connected to a tablet on the pilot’s kneeboard and provides real-time display of a number of parameters. Sensor compatibility with tools like MATLAB and Labview is highly useful and a CAN bus port can render it easily part of a bigger data acquisition system. First results are very promising.
