UIMU-LCI Product Sheet

The UIMU-LCI is a tactical grade IMU from Northrop-Grumman Litef GMBH. The custom NovAtel mechanical enclosure and software interface of the IMU integrates easily into our NovAtel SPAN® enabled GNSS/INS receivers, such as the SPAN-SE. IMU measurements are sent from the UIMU-LCI to the GNSS/INS receiver where a blended GNSS/INS position, velocity and attitude solution is generated at up to 200 Hz.


  • Closed loop FOGs and Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometers
  • 200 Hz data rate
  • >45,000 hour MTBF


  • Low noise and stable biases suited to ground and airborne survey
  • Complete assembly or individual components available
  • Easy integration with NovAtel’s GNSS/INS receivers
  • Supported by industry’s highest level of customer service

Flexible Application DevelopmentThe low noise and stable biases of the accelerometer and gyro sensors mean that the IMU is well suited for ground or airborne survey applications or general positioning and navigation in locations where standard GNSS receivers are not sufficient. The IMU is manufactured in Germany.

Enhance SPAN LCI Accuracy

Take advantage of our AdVance® RTK as well as support for other satellite based augmentation systems such as SBAS to improve real time performance and accuracy. For the most demanding applications our Inertial Explorer® post-processing software from our Waypoint® Products Group can be used to post-process SPAN LCI data to provide the highest level of accuracy with the system.
