SBG Systems Launch Dual Antenna GNSS Inertial Navigation System

By Caroline Rees / 26 Jul 2013

Ekinox-D Inertial Navigation SystemSBG Systems has added a new inertial system to its Ekinox Series. With integrated Dual Antenna GPS + GLONASS receiver, the Ekinox-D is a ready-to-use Survey Grade inertial navigation system which provides consistent true heading (0.05°).

The Survey Grade Ekinox-D is a high performance inertial navigation system which embeds a Dual Antenna L1/L2 GNSS receiver to deliver more robust heading and position, while increasing satellite reception availability. Ekinox-D is an integrated system. GNSS data and inertial information are fused by an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to improve data integrity. This computation allows the system to achieve 0.05° Roll, Pitch, and True Heading; 5 cm Heave; and 2 cm RTK GNSS position.

Ekinox-D can be connected directly to a camera, SONAR or LiDAR system, instead of mounting a GNSS receiver and inertial system separately. With its 8 GB data logger and its high output rate (200 Hz), Ekinox-D joins simplicity and performance for applications where robust heading is required such as Surveying and Hydrographic applications, Unmanned System Navigation and Car testing.

The IP68 Ekinox Series brings robust, maintenance free, and cost-effective MEMS to the next level thanks to the selection of high-end MEMS sensors, an advanced calibration procedure, and powerful algorithm design. Compromise is no longer required between high accuracy & cost.
