Pulse-40: SBG Systems Introduces its First Tactical Grade IMU on the Market

Carrières-sur-Seine – SBG Systems to announce the Pulse-40 Inertial Measurement Unit. This tactical-grade IMU offers unmatched performance in harsh conditions in a miniaturized size for applications where precision and robustness matter in all conditions.

SBG Systems has a long-term history of designing best-in-class MEMS-based Inertial Navigation Systems. At the core of our INS, extensive research in signal processing, micro-electronics, calibration algorithms, and sensor qualification have made our reputation of an unmatched accuracy and reliability for the past 15 years.

Today, we are thrilled to announce an all-new offer in the SBG portfolio, with the introduction of our Pulse-40 IMU with the best SWAP-C in its category.

High-end Inertial Measurement Unit Technology in the Smallest Form Factor

The Pulse-40 is a 6 degrees of Freedom, tactical grade IMU. It integrates cutting edge MEMS three axes accelerometers and gyroscopes in a unique redundant design that allows to shrink the system size while pushing performance level to its maximum.

Among the performance specifications, the Pulse-40 features excellent gyro and accelerometer bias instability of 0.8°/h and 6µg respectively, enabling long dead reckoning and maintaining excellent heading performance.

The Most Reliable Line of Miniature Inertial Sensors with a 2-year Warranty

The Pulse-40 has been designed from the ground up with reliability in mind. Thanks to a drastic selection of sensors featuring extremely low Vibration Rectification Error (VRE), the Pulse-40 is able to sustain high vibration environments, up to 10g RMS. Data reliability during operation is also ensured by the embedded Continuous Built-In-Test, enabled by our redundant sensor integration. This functionality is a key parameter for critical applications. The Pulse-40 requires no periodic maintenance. Indeed, an intensive qualification process including accelerated aging guarantees that the sensor behavior is stable over time. The Pulse-40 is delivered with a 2-year warranty.

Built on 15 years of Expertise

Since SBG Systems’ inception in 2007, a strategic development focus was placed on producing high-quality and highly repeatable inertial systems. Our sensor calibration and validation tools, initially based on a single axis motion simulator with a temperature chamber, have evolved over the years and are now based on 100% automated, multi-axis motion simulators with temperature chambers. The high level of automation mitigates human error risk and ensures that all the delivered products meet their specifications.

High-quality IMU for Camera, Gimbal, or Antenna Stabilization

The Pulse-40 is ideal for compact antenna or camera stabilization applications. Thanks to its high bandwidth (480Hz), high output data rate, up to 2kHz, and low motion to output latency of 2ms, the Pulse 40 can replace older generation FOG gyros or can be integrated into smaller payloads due to its very compact SWAP. The standard version (490°/s range) is export license free and ITAR free, lowering the administrative costs. An extended range of 2000°/s can also be offered for high dynamic applications with an export license.
