Magnetometer

Sometimes other onboard systems (e.g. electric motors, cabling etc) can interfere with the readings obtained from the built-in magnetometers in UAV Navigation's autopilots and AHRS-INS modules. In these cases, the MG01 provides a remote installation which can be physically located in a safe place far from interference.
 
Thanks to UAV Navigation’s advanced Attitude & Heading Reference System (AHRS) algorithms, the MG01 assists the autopilot or EFIS not only with accurate heading readings, but also by improving the attitude calculation in highly dynamic conditions.
 

Aside from numerous RPAS/UAV projects, MG01 was selected to equip all the aircraft competing in the 2014 edition of the Red Bull Air Races, and also various planes competing in the Reno Air Races.

Key Features:
  • Complete 3D magnetic field reading
