Post-Processing Software

Qinertia

INS/GNSS post-processing software

Qinertia is our next-generation GNSS/INS post-processing software, with access to offline, always up-to-date RTK corrections from more than 7,000 base stations located in 164 countries.Qinertia inertial navigation system

Designed to support all GNSS receivers and third-party IMUs, it features an advanced proprietary tight coupling algorithm designed to deliver the highest accuracy and maximize RTK availability.

The software also features Virtual Base Station (VBS) functionality, creating a virtual network around your project and providing centimetre-level accuracy even for corridor mapping, locations far from base stations, and in poorly covered RTK areas.

Qinertia is available in four different tiers:

  • Qinertia Pro – full-featured GNSS/INS post-processing solution supporting all SBG sensors and third-party IMUs
  • Qinertia Lite – economical solution for UAV and land-based projects, supporting all SBG sensors
  • Qinertia UAV – designed for UAV-based surveying and photogrammetry applications
  • Qinertia GNSS – static and kinematic GNSS data processing only, supporting any receiver
