Satellite navigation signals from space are precariously weak and can easily be blocked, damaged, or compromised by a growing array of threats - including solar activity, man-made interference, malicious faking of GPS signals, and the manipulation of position and timing information. As we come to rely more and more on GNSS signals and data across a wide range of industries, understanding and mitigating against these threats will become a critical risk management activity for manufacturers, systems and applications providers, and end-users..

[ADVERTISEMENT] KVH Industries
The subsea marine industry is adopting miniature robotics for tasks too hazardous for humans, and to assist human operators. These platforms require accurate real-time pose, navigation and localization. A compact commercial off-the-shelf inertial measurement unit (IMU) provides the core of a navigation solution suitable for small robotic systems. This webinar featuring Greensea Systems and KVH Industries, presents field results, and demonstrates advanced sensor fusion-based navigation and automation for small underwater robotics.
