SBG Systems’ Apogee-N inertial sensor

SBG Systems, a supplier of MEMS-based motion sensing solutions, has announced a major firmware update for its Ekinox and Apogee inertial sensor product lines. The new firmware completely reworks existing functionalities in addition to adding new features, and focuses on performance improvement, reliability and improved configuration interface to ease device configuration.

Due to a reworked data fusion algorithm, Inertial Navigation System performance has improved up to 15%. Units now report better estimated accuracy, with improved system robustness, performance in harsh environments and performance using NMEA GNSS aiding. Stability and reliability have improved especially while using two GNSS at the same time.

Alignment and new status flags have been added to make sure units have reached optimal accuracy. The units can now compute and output on each port a full deported navigation and ship motion data. The web interface has been completely reworked with 3D views to ease mechanical installation.

SBG has also added Apogee Subsea support and full Trimble protocol support.
