SBG Systems to Announce a New Generation of the Ekinox Series Inertial Sensors

Rueil-Malmaison, France, March 20th 2017 – SBG Systems is proud to announce the new Ekinox 2 Series, a new generation of the SBG’s advanced and compact inertial navigation systems. With new accelerometers and gyroscopes, Ekinox 2 attitude accuracy has been enhanced by a factor of two while improving resistance to vibrations and integrating the Beidou constellation.

Ekinox 2 Series: Twice More Accurate 

Ekinox Series is a line of tactical grade MEMS-based inertial navigation systems. Released in 2013, Ekinox has achieved a remarkable success thanks to its smart balance of accuracy, price, and weight. Thanks to continuous innovation, SBG Systems offers to its customers a new generation twice more accurate in attitude for the same price level. This major improvement is due to a complete redesign of the in-house Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) integrating new cutting-edge gyroscopes and accelerometers.

Perfectly Suited to Mobile Mapping Applications

With the same form factor and price level, Ekinox 2 Series improve the precision of Mobile Mapping Systems whether they are aerial, terrestrial, or even pedestrian. This new generation provides 0.02° roll and pitch, 0.05° heading, and a centimeter-level position. It is ideal for LiDAR motion compensation and point cloud / images synchronization and direct georeferencing. With new accelerometers, this new generation has also significantly improved its resistance to vibration. Finally, the addition of the Beidou constellation improves signal availability in Asia.

Easy Installation & Configuration 

Compact and light-weight, the Ekinox Series has been designed to simplify installation and operations. Configuration is made easy throughout the intuitive embedded web interface where all parameters can be quickly displayed and adjusted. For example, you can choose your profile (Plane, Car, etc.) and the 3D view will provide a visualization of settings such as the sensor position, alignment, lever arms, etc.

Ekinox 2 Series Availability

Ekinox 2 Series is ITAR Free. The product line will be available during the second quarter of 2017. Order information are available from SBG Systems representatives and authorized SBG Systems dealers.
