Ellipse Series 3rd Generation: SBG Systems renews its popular line of miniature inertial sensors with high-end functionalities and dual frequency RTK

Carrières-sur-Seine (France) – SBG Systems to announce the third generation of its popular line of miniature inertial sensors called the Ellipse Series. This renewed product line benefits from a 64bit architecture allowing high precision signal processing.. All the INS/GNSS now embed a dual-frequency, quad constellations GNSS receiver for centimetric position and higher orientation accuracy.

SBG Systems is the only manufacturer of miniature to high accuracy inertial navigation systems mastering the Inertial Measurement Unit design, calibration, and filtering. All improvements made in the high-end lines could naturally benefit to the Ellipse miniature line.

High-end Inertial Navigation Technology in the Smallest Form Factor

The company is proud to present the third generation of its popular range of miniature inertial sensors called the Ellipse Series. The line is composed of four models: the Ellipse-A  is a motion sensor, the Ellipse-E provides navigation with an external GNSS receiver, the Ellipse-N is a single antenna RTK GNSS/INS and the Ellipse-D is a dual-antenna RTK GNSS/INS. With its new 64-bit architecture, the Ellipse Series 3rd generation enables the use of high precision algorithms and technology used in high-end inertial systems such as rejection filters, FIR filtering, etc. All Ellipse miniature INS are now RTK-enabled without extra cost and output raw data for post-processing. All these features are made possible in small and robust aluminum enclosure box version, but also in the 17-gram OEM version providing unmatched performance/size ratio.

Ellipse-D, the Smallest Dual-frequency, Dual-antenna RTK GNSS/INS

Whether you choose the box or the OEM version, get the best performance/price/size ratio with the new Ellipse-D. With its dual frequency RTK GNSS receiver, the Ellipse-D provides a centimetric position. Dual frequency provides a way more robust heading and position computation than single frequency receivers. It allows unmatched performance in attitude (0.05°) and in heading (0.2°). With its dual-antenna capability, Ellipse-D provides precise heading in a few seconds, in all dynamic conditions, and even in challenging GNSS conditions. It is also immune to magnetic disturbances. Ellipse-D is quad-constellation, meaning it could use simultaneously satellites from GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, and GALILEO for more signal availability in challenging navigation conditions.

The most reliable line of miniature inertial sensors with 2-year warranty

Robustness and reliability has always been at the core of the Ellipse Series. Designed with high quality industrial-grade components, Ellipse inertial sensors are highly tested and calibrated in dynamic and temperature for a consistent and repeatable behavior in all conditions. Highly reliable, the Ellipse Series is the only miniature inertial sensors coming with a two-year warranty.

Designed for Unmanned Systems

Take your unmanned system to the latest technology with the Ellipse Series. With its 17-gram full featured RTK GNSS/INS OEM, your drone will benefit from high-end features, and spare weight and space. Ellipse-D dual antenna gives your UAV robust instant heading ideal for take-off. Dual antenna is achievable with a very short baseline, down to 50 cm. Finally, Ellipse is all about a quick and easy integration: ROS and PX4 driver, full API, and free phone and email technical support.
