ANS-510 is a navigation grade airborne inertial navigation system with embedded GPS receiver which is intended for application to military air vehicles.
ANS-510 has an open architecture and hardware/ software flexible unit which can be adapted to various air platforms including rotary-wing, fixed-wing and unmanned aerial vehicles.
ANS-510 consists of strapdown inertial measurement unit, system processor unit, power supply unit, Embedded GPS Receiver (EGR) and chassis. EGR is capable of tracking space vehicles simultaneously and transmitting the line-of-sight (LOS), position and velocity information to the system processor. The system processor combines the GPS data with the inertial data from IMU in a tightly coupled mechanization using Kalman filter. ANS-510 is capable of using either SAASM compliant GPS receiver or commercial SPS GPS receiver as embedded GPS receiver. ANS-510 also has capability to operate with an external GPS receiver. In case of external GPS, system processor combines the GPS data with the inertial data in a loosely coupled mechanization.
ANS-510 supplies linear acceleration, linear and angular velocity, position, attitude and heading to the host vehicle systems continuously. ANS-510 provides a hybrid (inertial GPS) navigation solution, inertial only navigation solution and a GPS only navigation solution simultaneously. ANS- 510 is also capable of using external pressure altitude data to complement hybrid and inertial only navigation solutions.
