DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - January 07, 2013) - Unmanned Innovation, a leading provider of Development Platforms for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), announced that it has partnered with VectorNav Technologies to integrate VectorNav's VN-100 inertial measurement unit (IMU) into its os-Series Autopilots. Unmanned Innovation's os-Series Autopilots offer a customizable solution that enables rapid prototyping and cost-effective production of fixed-wing, helicopter, multi-rotor, and custom configuration UAS. Unmanned Innovation has integrated VectorNav's VN-100 miniature, calibrated MEMS-based, surface-mount IMU to provide customers the option of a fully calibrated and thoroughly tested IMU.
Unmanned Innovation's os-Series Autopilots, made commercially available for the first time in November 2012, combine modular hardware with an open architecture, making each autopilot a Development Platform. The os-Series Autopilots are offered in multiple form factors with features tailored for various vehicles, payloads, and applications. Each os-Series Autopilot is a complete integrated solution and contains an INS/GPS with air data incorporating the VectorNav VN-100, a datalink radio, payload interfaces, and a Linux computer within one miniature package; starting at just 32 grams. The os-Series Autopilots come with professionally written flight control and mission software which Unmanned Innovation provides under a royalty-free license that allows for easy modification, extension, and inclusion in proprietary products.
The partnership between the two companies began during AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America 2012 conference in August, where Unmanned Innovation was introduced to VectorNav's VN-100 and recognized it as an attractive alternative to their existing inertial measurement sensors due to its small form factor, low-cost, and high-precision calibration. Unmanned Innovation's flexible architecture allowed for quick integration of the VN-100 and VectorNav provided custom firmware with a faster update rate to make the IMU compatible with Unmanned Innovation's requirements. The VN-100 IMU, calibrated for bias, scale factor and misalignment errors at room temperature or over the entire thermal operating range of the sensor increased the accuracy of the os-Series Autopilot navigation solution. After a short development cycle, testing and verification, VectorNav's VN-100 IMUs are now fully integrated within Unmanned Innovation's os-Series Autopilots. The complete os-Series product line is currently shipping to customers in the USA and abroad and is free of ITAR restrictions.
"We are very pleased to be working with Unmanned Innovation on their os-Series Autopilot, which we find to be a very unique and high-value product that fills a significant gap in this market," said John Brashear, VectorNav's President. "We hope that the VN-100 adds to this value by allowing Unmanned Innovation to focus on their strengths improving the os-Series while securing a long-term, dependable sensing solution and partnership with our company."
"We're very excited about working with VectorNav as their well calibrated hardware has added enhanced accuracy to our os-Series Autopilots," said Jonathan Downey, CEO of Unmanned Innovation.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
