Inertial Aerosystems have introduced an enhanced version of their established MTi-G product. This device, manufactured by Netherlands based Xsens Motion Technology, is a MEMS Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) with integrated GPS. The unit provides accurate horizontal and vertical position, velocity and 3D orientation estimates. It incorporates an internal ultra low power signal processor and a real time Kalman filter.
The new MTi-G has a new GPS receiver which features 50 tracking channels instead of 16. This gives a faster GPS recovery after (short) signal outages within challenging environments. In the case of the GPS fix being lost, the GPS receiver will use all 50 channels to restore the fix. The MTI-G has a faster and more stable GPS fix. The velocity output accuracy is improved by using carrier phase tracking.

The new GPS receiver is prepared for GALILEO L1 open service.

Able to operate in tough environments within a temperature range of 20 to 55 degrees C, the MTi-G weighs only 68 grams and measures 58 x 58 x 33mm making it ideal where space and weight are at a premium.

The MTI-G is an excellent measurement unit for navigation and control of vehicles, other objects and even humans. Applications include aerospace, automotive, robotics and marine industries as well as pedestrian navigation and virtual reality.
