AARC51/52   REAL-TIME COMPENSATION FOR UAV PLATFORMS

RMS Instruments is pleased to introduce the AARC51 and AARC52, the newest members in its family of Adaptive Aeromagnetic Real-Time Compensation systems. The AARC51/52 have been designed for installation in UAV platforms. While very compact (133 x 133 x 216 mm) and light (< 2 Kg), they offer the same level of performance for real-time magnetics and compensation as other members of the family. They support one (AARC51) or two (AARC52) high-sensitivity magnetometer inputs, and require less than 3.5 A at +28 VDC, including the sensors. An interface for an external GPS receiver is included, and in the case of the AARC52 an embedded (dual-frequency) receiver is available. Both models include also general-purpose data acquisition capabilities. While specifically targeted to UAV applications, the AARC51/52 are also perfectly suited for conventional fixed-wing or helicopter platforms.

DAS500   DATA ACQUISTION SYSTEM

RMS Instruments' new data acquisition system, the DAS500, is ideally suited to airborne and mobile geophysical and environmental survey/monitoring applications. Based on a deterministic, real-time operating system, and state-of-the-art hardware and firmware architectures, it offers internal magnetometer counters for up to eight sensors, flexible and comprehensive data acquisition and recording capabilities, and an embedded GPS receiver. The DAS500 delivers data from practically any sensor/device used in airborne geophysical applications, with unparalleled performance, accuracy and reliability.

PDU500   POWER DISTRIBUTION UNIT

This unit provides reliable power distribution for equipment racks, with eight outputs at 28VDC (two at 10A, six at 5A), and two outputs at 12VDC (6A).

GPS RECEIVER OPTION Retrofit for AARC500 and DAARC500

The GPS Receiver Option for new compensation and data acquisition systems from RMS Instruments, has also been made available as a retrofit for older AARC500 and DAARC500 units.

The option is available in an internal form (in which the GPS receiver itself is embedded within the chassis), and in an external form (in which an external receiver is connected to dedicated I/O ports in the AARC500/DAARC500).

GPS data are directly appended at the end of recorded and transmitted magnetics data. GPS data rates up to 10 Hz are supported.

This option greatly simplifies the process of time-aligning and merging data. Since records in magnetics data files (i.e., 'd' files) include the GPS information, there is no need for any time-alignment through a separate 'NAV' file recorded through one of the general-purpose serial ports.

For the internal form, the embedded GPS receiver can be selected from Novatel's OEMV-1, OEMV-2, and the new OEM6 series.

GPS variables can be monitored on the screen in real-time, both graphically and numerically.

NEW WINDOWS PRINTER DRIVER FOR GP300

The PDb320 Windows Printer Driver is a new member of the family of printer drivers for the GP300 offered by RMS Instruments. PDb320 supports the GP300's 'raster graphics compressed' print mode, which results in much faster print rates than those available with earlier drivers. It works under Windows XP/7.
