The IS-1500 SYSTEM is Vision-Inertial Tracking for mixed reality and GPS denied navigation. This small, lightweight, user-friendly Optical-Inertial device lets you track an object or person in any environment from your mobile computing platform with maximum precision that’s highly suitable for augmented reality and robotic navigation applications.

Unprecedented Software Capabilities
The IS-1500’s unique software architecture enables a lightweight, mobile Vision-Inertial Navigation approach to Natural Feature Tracking. Combined with optional marker-based tracking, the IS-1500 represents truly flexible next generation capability.


Total Mobility
With our InertiaCam hardware, a vision-inertial sensor incorporating our NavChip inertial measurement unit, the IS-1500 can track anywhere at any time including inside of a moving platform such as a car or plane.


Ruggedness and Reliability
The InertiaCam hardware is based on our HObIT helmet tracker, which provides situational awareness to pilots in mission critical applications around the world. The InertiaCam is built to withstand the rigors of a wide range of challenging outdoor and indoor environments.


Precision factory calibrated hardware, compatibility with USB standards, and software that can run on your mobile processor alongside your application, all provide for ease of integration. Our simple to use SDK and developer tools should have you up and running in minutes.
