iVRU-CB-M: Performance test executed on helicopter (UAS)
iMAR's iVRU-CB-M is a miniaturized System, containing MEMS based inertial sensors and an integrated GNSS receiver. It provides CAN and RS422 UART Interfaces with up to 100 Hz data rate. It can use its internal GPS receiver or it can be aided by iDAGOS, our dual-antenna GNSS System, which can also provide heading in even very low & no dynamic environment. iVRU-CB-M is made for applications which require reliable performance in a small package and simple usage.
The test report, containing 3 different flights, is available under the following link for download. The iVRU-CB-M had been tested against both, a FOG based and RLG based system, where the reference data of the FOG and RLG based systems had been processed additionally in post-processing using RTK aiding to have an accurate reference available.
The iVRU-CB-M was operated online without any ground station based GNSS reference data.
The iVRU-CB-M together with our iMAG-DMC-LS is also accepted from the Swiss Aviation Authorities (FOCA / BAZL) to be used inside of the SolarImpulse II aircraft on its famous trip around the whole earth as the main Pilot Assistance System (attitude, heading, Position, velocity, rates and acceleration). The challenge fr the Solar Impulse airplane was light weight and low power at superior and reliable performance. Details see www.solarimpulse.com .
