Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

An UAV is an aircraft that flies without a human crew on board the aircraft. There are a wide variety of UAV shapes, sizes, configurations, and characteristics. UAVs come in two varieties: some are controlled from a remote location, and others fly autonomously based on pre-programmed flight plans using more complex dynamic automation systems.

UAVs are also used in a small but growing number of civil applications, such as firefighting or nonmilitary security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. UAVs are often preferred for missions that are too "dull, dirty, or dangerous" for manned aircraft.

NASP develops advanced hybrid navigation systems for UAV incorporating a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) together with accurate MEMS based accelerometers and inertial sensors. This solutions are full-custom and highly integrated, following our premises of low weight, low volumme and high innovation.
