Puma VNS visible navigation system – sUAS Information – The Enterprise of Drones

Connect With Us

AeroVironment’s Puma™ VNS is a visual-based navigation system for PumaAE small unmanned plane programs (SUAS). PumaVNS allows GPS-denied navigation throughout GPS-contested environments. The system performs Visible Inertial Odometry (VIO) via a set of built-in sensors and an onboard compute module to find out the exact location of the plane throughout flight.

Designed to adapt to a constantly altering battlefield, PumaVNS will allow more and more superior navigation capabilities, options and performance via future software program and {hardware} updates. Out there as an add-on possibility for brand spanking new Puma 3 AE system orders and as a retrofit equipment for fielded Puma 2 AE and Puma 3 AE plane.
