ATLANS-C

iXBlue, a leading provider of navigation, positioning, and mapping solutions, today launched its new ATLANS-C position and orientation system, developed in close cooperation with Septentrio Satellite Navigation. The system is designed to provide continuous and accurate positioning in urban environments, where global navigation satellite system (GNSS) signals are obscured, intermittent, or possibly distorted by reflective surfaces.

ATLANS-C benefits from the optimized integration of iXBlue’s leading fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG) based inertial navigation system (INS) and Septentrio’s world-renowned multi-constellation GNSS receiver technologies. Experts from iXBlue and Septentrio worked closely to develop an unrivaled smart coupling method that combines the advantages of the two companies’ leading technologies. The result is an easy-to-use, easy-to-integrate, and highly reliable INS-GNSS mobile mapping solution.

“The ATLANS-C development was a real team effort. Technical trials with leading customers have already demonstrated superior accuracy, continuity and reliability of positioning and attitude data, even in the most challenging urban environment,” stated Jan Van Hees, head of sales and business development at Septentrio.

“The new system’s robustness, compact size, and improved urban-area performance uniquely address more complex mobile mapping market requirements. The ease of use, quick integration, and zero maintenance features are excellent values recognized by original equipment manufacturers (OEM) or mobile mapping system integrators,” explained Xavier Montazel, head of iXBlue inertial products division. “One of ATLANS-C’s many other advantages is its versatility, allowing the same equipment to be used for land and air applications. Configuration of the system is achieved through the use of iXBlue’s innovative web interface, utilized across the complete range of products.”

ATLANS-C has no ITAR components inside, allowing fast and easy global export. Customers will benefit from the industry exclusive five-year warranty and a 24/7 support line. ATLANS-C is available today with a six-week lead time.
