Navigation Systems Laboratory

The Navigation Systems Laboratory is oriented to the development of Navigation Systems, Stabilized Platforms as well as other applications which demand the utilization of navigation sensors. The equipment comprises a wide variety of test and validation systems ranging from high accuracy Navigation Systems that can be used as reference systems, to external clocks, GNSS antenna splitters and “mass market” low-cost sensors. It is remarkable the relevance of the equipment intended for the characterization and modeling of sensors and systems:

  • ACUTRONIC SIMEX TWO 2-axis motion simulator with removable temperature chamber and 45 kg maximum payload for modeling and calibration of MEMS inertial sensors and stabilized platform testing (Hardware-in-the-loop). More information

Test-bed for the development of GNSS attitude determination systems and antenna calibration (Phase Center Variation). It includes a high accuracy 2-axis rotary table.
