The LORD Sensing family of high-performance, industrial-grade inertial sensors provides a wide range of triaxial inertial measurements and computed attitude and navigation solutions.

The 3DM-CX5-45 all-in-one navigation solution features a high-performance, integrated multi- constellation GNSS receiver utilizing the GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo satellite constellations. Sensor measurements are fully calibrated, temperature-compensated, and mathematically- aligned to an orthogonal coordinate system for highly accurate outputs. The auto- adaptive estimation filter algorithm produces highly accurate computed outputs under dynamic conditions. Compensation options include automatic compensation for magnetic anomalies, gyro and accelerometer noise, and noise effects. The computed outputs include pitch, roll, yaw, heading, position, velocity, and GNSS outputs- making it a complete GNSS/INS (GNSS Aided Inertial Navigation System) solution. The use of Micro- Electro- Mechanical System (MEMS) technology provides a highly accurate, small, light- weight device.
