iMAR Navigation is a worldwide leading provider of systems and solutions in inertial navigation, stabilization, guidance and control for all industrial, geodetic, aviation, surveying, automotive and sovereign applications.
iMAR Navigation GmbH, a German company, is a well-known specialist and innovator on leading inertial systems and solutions for more than 25 years and has extensive long-time experience in conception, development, production, maintenance and support of inertial measuring, navigation, guidance, stabilization, control and PNT / PNTC (positioning, navigation, timing, communication) systems destined to a wide range of standard and special applications, for unmanned and manned platforms, in industrial, automotive, aerospace as well as in defence environment.
iMAR Navigation was founded in 1992 and is located in St. Ingbert, near Frankfurt (Germany), where it has its headquarters and production site (2'300 sq.m / 25'000 sq.ft).
iMAR operates an advanced and powerful in-house manufacturing and integration infrastructure: Several multi axes turntables and temperature lab, vibration and shock testing lab, a hexapod 6D high dynamic motion simulator for up to 1 ton payload, 3-axes and 5 axes CNC machine tools, ZEISS coordinate measuring machine etc.; click on the picture to have a look into one of iMAR's manufacturing and integration labs.
The manufacturing includes series devices and system solutions, i.e. Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) and Military-off-the-Shelf (MOTS), as well as customized solutions from the prototype over pre-series devices up to large quantities.
Three key elements make a sound basis for developing our advanced inertial measuring systems ans solutions - know-how, more than 25 years expertise and field experience and in-depth knowledge of inertial measuring technologies, navigation algorithms, sensor systems, stereo vision signal processing, electric drive technologies and mechatronics systems, as well as hardware design, firmware design and software engineering including highly sophisticated data fusion.
Our cost-effective, premium high-tech products and system solutions are the result of a policy of continuous investment in human resources and technological innovation - more than 70 engineers and technicians, quality assurance and administration staff, all highly qualified and dedicated to their work, the availability of all state-of-the-art inertial sensor technologies ranging from MEMS gyros to hemispheric resonator gyros (HRG) and from fiber optic gyroscopes (FOG) to ring laser gyros (RLG), augmented by satellite, stereo vision and other technologies and a powerful development and production tool chain also featuring in-house Matlab/Simulink, SolidWorks, EDA tools, HyperMill, 3-axes and 5-axes CNC centres and much more.
iMAR is manufacturing according to military, industrial, automotive and aerospace quality standards. The reliability of our products is guaranteed by our modern production site, which is certified according to ISO 9001 / EN 9100 quality standards (industrial engineering / development and production lifecycle according to aviation requirements). The production facility is certified to EASA Part21G (avionics equipment) since 09/2011.
iMAR's comprehensive in-house testing equipment also includes several two and three axes turntables, a micron accurate coordinate measuring machine, several full range temperature chambers, a 6 DOF hexapod motion simulator with up to +/-1 g acceleration and up to 1 ton payload, an advanced GNSS real-time simulator (incl. multi-constellation and RTK), and a 40 kN vibration and shock testing platform, also fully complying with mil/space specifications. After manufacturing, calibration and final testing, our products are delivered to customers operating them in industrial branches, automotive industry, in civil and military aviation, at the armed forces (navy, army and airforces) at special forces of many countries worldwide.
Due to the increasing volume of offered and manufactured products and system solutions, iMAR Navigation has expanded its production and research facilities in May 2003 to serve also the expanding international market. An additional building had been errected early 2015 to have available additional 800 sqm for manufacturing and development.
