Pollux Inertial Navigation System

Extremely Compact And Versatile Navigation Solution For On-Ground And Airborne Applications.

Product lifecycle status: 

Pollux is an extremely compact and versatile navigation solution for on ground and airborne applications. Pollux is a GNSS aided inertial navigation solution which can give navigation data even in absence of GPS.

 

It can be used for Indoor Navigation in the Urban scenario as well as deliver 2.5 cm position accuracy in RTK setup.

Pollux can be installed in soldier back-pack or belt and can be used for real-time tracking and situational awareness. Pollux comes with a USB interface for integration with Tablet and PC.

 

Pollux combines Aeron’s Kalman filter-based parameter estimation engine with high-speed processing power to deliver position, ground speed, and orientation information at 25 times per second. Pollux gives Industry-leading navigation performance with the help of the latest MEMS (Micro Electro-Magnetic System) sensing technology and multi-constellation GNSS.
