VectorNav Technologies Participates in USAF’s NAVFEST Test Event to Enhance Robust PNT Solutions

VectorNav Technologies, a provider of high-performance, low-SWaP IMU and GNSS-Aided Inertial Navigation Systems, recently participated in the USAF’s NAVFEST 2024 Test Event. The event, hosted by the 746th Test Squadron at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, and held at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), took place from May 6-17.

NAVFEST provides the Department of Defense (DoD) and industry partners an invaluable opportunity to test and evaluate products and solutions in real-world GNSS-contested conditions to enhance systems robustness and resilience in these environments.

VectorNav’s participation aimed to evaluate its solutions in GNSS-contested scenarios to continue advancing its capabilities for robust Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT). The VectorNav team tested a variety of systems on both aerial and ground-based platforms and conducted both static and dynamic maneuvers.

During the event, VectorNav evaluated a range of its single and dual-antenna GNSS-Aided INS products, including the VN-210, VN-310, VN-210-S, VN-200, VN-300, VN-210E, and VN-310E in various configurations. Additionally, these products were tested in combination with a variety of additional PNT systems, including:

  • External Tactical and Navigation Grade IMUs
  • M-Code GPS receivers
  • Anti-Jam Antennas
  • Commercial L1/L2/L5 GNSS receivers in varied configurations
  • LEO Satellite receivers

The data collected from the event is currently being analyzed to further refine and enhance VectorNav’s solutions in GNSS-contested environments. Organizations seeking assured PNT solutions in GNSS-contested environments are encouraged to contact VectorNav to discuss their specific requirements and how VectorNav can meet their navigation needs.
