Inertial Explorer® (IE) maximizes the performance of your GNSS/INS hardware by ensuring you get the position, velocity and attitude accuracy your application requires. The tightly coupled integration of GNSS and IMU data delivers precise results, even when lower grade inertial sensors are used. IE can produce results suitable for demanding applications such as mobile mapping, aerial and hydrographic surveying. IMU data from high-end Fibre Optic Gyro (FOG) or Ring Laser Gyro (RLG) IMUs, and from lower grade sensor technology such as Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) can be processed.
IE has workflows to match your business and your expertise. A project wizard is available to allow new GNSS/INS users to become productive quickly. For more experienced users, a wealth of processing configuration options are available. Automated processing environment detection (aerial, ground vehicle, pedestrian and marine) allows appropriate GNSS + INS processing settings to be used automatically to simplify workflow and reduce the learning curve needed to start producing quality results.
Inertial Explorer runs within our familiar Waypoint GrafNav processing environment and data analysis is performed with the same plotting tools. Inertial Explorer supports the following two processing modes:
It is the user’s responsibility to time tag each set of inertial measurements to the GPS time frame during the data collection process. NovAtel’s SPAN® technology offers this. For more information on SPAN, click here.
TerraStar-NRT is a multi-constellation correction service that enables centimetre-level accuracy in post-processing without the need for a base station. High rate satellite clock and orbit products are uploaded to a NovAtel server every 15 minutes to allow for post-processing almost immediately after data collection. When used with the PPP-AR Engine with NovAtel receivers, it provides better horizontal accuracies for short duration surveys. A TerraStar-NRT license is available as a yearly subscription and must be activated in Waypoint Software through the local license manager to use.
Inertial Explorer SDK (Software Developers Kit) is a suite of tools that can be used standalone or embedded for GNSS/INS post-processing in enterprise software or processing workflow.
