ANavS – Advanced Navigation Solutions
ANavS is a leading company in the development of ultra-precise position and attitude solutions. We achieve an accuracy of a few centimeters for the position and of 0.25°/m for the heading through our patented GNSS (GPS, Glonass, Galileo, etc.) carrier phase positioning (RTK) with integer ambiguity resolution.
Our sensor fusion with a tight coupling of GNSS and inertial measurements allows us to provide a seamless position and attitude information with 100 Hz in areas with and without GNSS signal reception (e.g. below trees, bridges, tunnels). We also include corrections from a virtual reference station to achieve a centimeter-level accuracy at any place at any time.
The ANavS multi-sensor modules include 6 sensors (multi-constellation GNSS receiver, 3D accelerometer, 3D gyroscope, 3D magnetometer, barometer, thermometer), an internal GNSS antenna, three communication interfaces (USB, bluetooth, UART), a processor and a microSD card. The weight of the ANavS multi-sensor board is only 20 g and the size is only 80 mm x 52 mm, which allows its use in a wide range of applications.

The subsequent figure shows the positioning of ANavS in the market: We are providing position and attitude solutions that are much more accurate than mass-market GNSS receivers and almost as accurate as geodetic receivers. However, ANavS solutions are much cheaper than geodetic ones.
We are providing both software and hardware. Our solutions are used in automobile, maritime and machine steering applications (e.g. antenna pointing), but can be used also in any other application with the need of a precise and reliable position and/ or attitude information.
