  • OxTS will show its latest GPS-aided inertial navigation system xNAV550 at this years’ AUVSI exhibition, in Atlanta, United States between 5th-7th May 2015.


    Despite its size the new xNAV550 represents a big addition to our xNAV family as the first model to feature 2cm positional accuracy. The xNAV550 builds on the success of the xNAV500 and xNAV200. The xNAV550 is aimed at applications where measurement accuracy must match, size and performance.


    With a mass of just 425 g and small enough to fit in a coat pocket, the xNAV550 packs a lot of technology into a small space. Featuring dual GPS receivers and a state-of-the-art custom built inertial measurement unit, the xNAV550 constantly monitors position, orientation and velocity with 2cm accuracy. 4 GB of on-board storage is available, allowing four days' worth of measurements to be stored internally. Data can be easily downloaded from the system and post-processed using our advanced software, which is included as standard at no extra cost.


    Interfacing the xNAV550 to cameras, laser scanners or other sensor arrays is easy thanks to the xNAV550's digital input, which can be used to generate event-driven navigation messages that are time-stamped to external events. The easy to use configuration software, NAVconfig, also allows the xNAV550 to generate distance-based signals that can be used to trigger external equipment. These features, and the convenience of the one-box solution, ensure it is quick and easy to acquire the accurate exposure point data required for direct-georeferencing.

  • OxTS are proud to announce the latest addition to our xNAV line of products–the miniature, lightweight inertial navigation system. The new xNAV550 adds survey-grade GNSS receivers, giving RTK capability and adding centimetre-level position accuracy to the small package.


    Weighing 425 g, the xNAV550 is well-suited for weight and space restricted applications such as UAS/UAV surveying. And now with 2 cm position accuracy it can precisely georeference images, point clouds, and other data from your surveying system.


    OxTS are also able to now offer the xOEM550 board-set only variant of the xNAV550. The xOEM550 is the latest addition to the OEM product family. The xOEM550 builds on the success of the xOEM500, it’s the latest in the range so support weight and size constrained applications, with the ability of 2cm accuracy. The system is perfectly suited to system integrators to offer a complete solution. The xOEM550 boasts a weight of less than 200g, yet keeping all the great features such as real-time and post-processing and a positional accuracy of 50cm.
