Inertial Surveying System
EMCORE’s Improved Position and Azimuth Determining System (IPADS-I) is an inertial surveying system developed to meet today’s demanding international military survey needs. Survey operations functionality, navigational accuracy, transportability, survivability and affordability requirements drove the system design.
EMCORE’s IPADS-I (International) provides significant enhancements for today’s Army and Marine Corps survey teams. IPADS offers a proven, reliable, lightweight, off-the-shelf solution developed around four main components.
> Compact Position/Navigation Unit (CPNU)
> Control and Display Unit (CDU)
> Battery and Charger Unit (BCU)
> Porro Prism Assembly (PPA)
All components are housed in a robust frame that allows for easy component access and stability, while facilitating a ready, two-person transfer between vehicles and aircraft.
