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


AeroVironment’s Puma™ VNS is a visual-based navigation system for PumaAE small unmanned plane programs (SUAS). PumaVNS permits GPS-denied navigation throughout GPS-contested environments. The system performs Visible Inertial Odometry (VIO) by way of 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 repeatedly altering battlefield, PumaVNS will allow more and more superior navigation capabilities, options and performance by way of future software program and {hardware} updates. Accessible as an add-on possibility for brand new Puma 3 AE system orders and as a retrofit package for fielded Puma 2 AE and Puma 3 AE plane.
