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.
