Russian drones will receive a new strapdown inertial navigation system. The first deliveries of the new system are planned for this year.. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.
The development of navigation systems was carried out by the specialists of the holding “Cretu”. The novelty has already passed tests on prototypes of Russian drones and will begin to be supplied in series this year..
New strapdown inertial navigation system can determine coordinates and parameters of movement even in the absence of any landmarks. The implementation of orientation and determination of the location of the drone occurs relative to a given trajectory or target, including the moving.
The system was based on developments, previously used only in aircraft and helicopter construction.
(…) these systems are reliable, highest precision and versatility. They allow the drone not to depend on landmarks and weather conditions.
– told the executive director of Rostec Oleg Yevtushenko.
New Navigation System Provides Highest Accuracy. When working with GPS or GLONASS, and such an opportunity is built into the system, the error is less 1%, when working autonomously – less 2%.
The use of a new navigation system in testing prototypes of Russian drones last year has shown high efficiency. According to the plans of the developers, this system will be installed on the UAV, what exactly, not reported.
