Gladiator Technologies Division announced today the release of a new model of their proven high performance LandMarkTM 50 GPS/AHRS. The new CANBUS output feature enables easy integration for automotive test users as well as automotive racing test teams. The system builds upon the successful heritage of the company's LandMarkTM GPS/AHRS product families, including the LandMark™ 10/20/30/40 and 50. The new and improved LandMark™ 50 GPS/AHRS represents inertial performance on par with systems utilizing traditional higher cost inertial technologies. This performance leap with low cost MEMS technology offers substantial improvement in performance over previous generation systems and is combined with a 72 channel GPS receiver with up to an 18Hz GPS navigation update rate. All LandMark™ GPS-Aided products now incorporate the new GPS receiver. In addition to CANBUS outputs, the LandMark™ 50 GPS/AHRS also features our standard RS422/RS485 serial interface with a data rate of 100Hz (4 KHz internal sampling rate) and offers many advanced performance features:
