Full Navigation Capabilities for Small Subsea Vehicles with Integrated INS on Nucleus1000

In addition to a dedicated INS data stream, the Nucleus software can show a vehicle’s location in real time on a map using inputs from its sensors and Nortek’s navigation algorithms. (Image credit: Nortek)

The Nucleus1000 navigation sensor suite from Nortek is now available with full INS (inertial navigation system) capabilities, enabling absolute position outputs obtained using the Nucleus’s on-board inertial and acoustic sensor package.

Equipping the sensor package with a full INS enables true navigation (latitude/longitude or X/Y output) for small AUVs, ROVs and USVs.

With these new capabilities, people working in the subsea industry now have access to the most compact, most affordable and most accurate complete inertial/acoustic navigation system of its class available on the market.

Users can now add a convenient source of basic positioning to their vehicle without substantial time, cost and payload demands. The Nucleus only needs to be provided with a GPS position to begin navigating using absolute positioning.

Providing earth-referenced position to a vehicle control system means that users who need to know where they are, where they’ve been and where they’re going now have a preconfigured, pre-synchronized navigation package.

Prior to this, users would have to fuse data from multiple different sensors to obtain a reliable position output, either through their own software or additional third-party packages.

With a heading sensor that measures relative to magnetic north, as well as integrated pressure and temperature sensors, the Nucleus with INS introduces the most compact, most affordable and most accurate complete inertial/acoustic navigation system of its class available on the market.
