for AIRBORNE PLATFORMS
The use of unmanned airborne platforms relies heavily on the presence of precise GNSS (GPS, Galileo, Baidu, GLONASS) signals and data.
A poor GPS signal or its absence altogether may bring all operations and flights to a halt, severely harming UAS missions, services and supply chains.
Receiving a "spoofed" GPS signal poses serious threats to any UAS and its operators.
INS (Inertial Navigation system) is usually used a secondary navigation system, but tends to drift along time and provide false location data.
LOCATOR uses ProTrack's unique, operationally-proven, industry leading Video Anchoring capabilities to continually test the GPS and/or INS signals and the platform's telemetry, correct them and make them much more accurate. It automatically switches to precise video-based navigation if it senses they are corrupt.
The product easily integrates with the platform's on-board controller or ground control station (Windows or Linux) and keeps it flying safely even when GPS and/or INS is not available at all.
The videos below show the position of the UAS and the corrected video trace, as calculated by the software.
