The product provides highly accurate GNSS-denied navigation, maintaining error rates as low as 0-1% over covered distances.

MADRID - UAV Navigation-Grupo Oesía, a navigation solutions company in Madrid, Spain, announced the release of its GNSS-Denied Navigation Kit solution which is specifically designed to thrive in global navigation satellite system (GNSS)-denied environments, enabling navigation capabilities in challenging scenarios.

The new GNSS-Denied Navigation Kit combines UAV Navigation-Grupo Oesía's Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), the POLAR-300, with its visual navigation system, the VNS01. This integration ensures dead reckoning navigation capabilities with minimal drift, setting new standards for precision and stability in challenging scenarios.

Some of the key features of the GNSS-Denied Navigation Kit include field-proven navigational accuracy: The product provides highly accurate GNSS-denied navigation, maintaining error rates as low as 0-1% over covered distances; visual-based technology for precise attitude and position estimation; and proven against counter-UAV/anti-UAV measures as it is equipped with algorithms so the kit can detect and counter sophisticated "spoofing" and "jamming" techniques to ensure reliable and secure navigation even in the face of potential disruptions.

As technology advances and geopolitical challenges emerge, the demand for reliable and secure navigation for uncrewed aerial systems (UAS) intensifies. Ensuring operational integrity in both civil and defense sectors is paramount, especially with the rise of disruptive systems designed to interfere with radio-electronic navigation and communication.

The GNSS-Denied Navigation Kit addresses these challenges to offer a solution that combines different technologies. With GNSS signals increasingly under threat from both unintentional and intentional interference, the shortcomings of traditional navigational systems are evident.

"At UAV Navigation-Grupo Oesía, we understand the current and future demands of clients inside the unmanned aviation sector. The GNSS-Denied Navigation Kit is a testament to our dedication to providing innovative solutions that enable our customers to operate in challenging scenarios where the GNSS signal is not available," said Miguel Ángel de Frutos, Director and CTO at UAV Navigation-Grupo Oesía.
