      GP9: GPS-Aided AHRS

      The GP9 is a GPS-aided AHRS that measures orientation, velocity, and position at 500 Hz. The GP9 combines temperature-compensated rate gyros, accelerometers, magnetometers, and absolute air pressure with GPS to produce angle estimates that are reliable even during aggressive dynamic maneuvers. Unlike more simple attitude sensors, the GP9 is capable of measuring its yaw angle without relying on unpredictable magnetic field measurements.

      UM7 Orientation Sensor

      The UM7 is a 3rd-generation Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) that takes advantage of state-of-the-art MEMS technology to improve performance and reduce costs. Like its predecessors, the UM7 combines triaxial accelerometer, rate gyro, and magnetometer data using a sophisticated Extended Kalman Filter to produce attitude and heading estimates.

      UM7-LT Orientation Sensor

      The UM7-LT is equivalent to the UM7, except that it does not include an enclosure and factory calibration is not available. The UM7 is a 3rd-generation Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) that takes advantage of state-of-the-art MEMS technology to improve performance and reduce costs. Like its predecessors, the UM7 combines triaxial accelerometer, rate gyro, and magnetometer data using a sophisticated Extended Kalman Filter to produce attitude and heading estimates.
