At this week’s INTERGEO show in Frankfurt, Germany, SBG Systems released the Navsight Land/Air Solution, a full high performance inertial navigation solution designed to make surveyors’ mobile data collection easier, whether it is mobile mapping, GIS, or road inspection.
Navsight Land/Air Solution consists of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) available at two different performance levels, and connected to Navsight, a rugged equipment embedding the fusion intelligence, the GNSS receiver, and all connections to external equipment such as LiDAR, cameras, computer, etc.
Navsight Land/Air Solution is the result of more than 10 years of experience in the mobile positioning industry, especially in the unmanned industry where position reliability is mandatory. SBG’s experience in fusion algorithms allows the company to get optimal performance from inertial, odometer, and GNSS technologies, excluding false GNSS fix, and improving the trajectory in complicated areas such as urban canyons, forest, and tunnels. The Navsight Land/Air Solution supports all GNSS constellations, RTK, and every Precise Point Positioning service (Omnistar, TerraStar, etc.), according to the company.
Simple, Easy Installation
The company’s IMUs are described as easy to install, as the sensor alignment and lever arms are automatically estimated and validated. Once connected to the Navsight processing unit, the web interface guides the user to configure the solution. A 3D view of the vehicle shows the entered parameters so that the user can check the installation. By choosing the vehicle, a plane or a car for example, the inner algorithms are automatically adjusted to the application. The Navsight unit also integrates LED indicators for satellite availability, RTK corrections, and power.
Completing the Navsight offer, Qinertia, the SBG post-processing software, gives access to offline RTK corrections from more than 7,000 base stations located in 164 countries. Trajectory and orientation are said to be greatly improved by processing inertial data and raw GNSS observables in forward and backward directions.
Navsight is ITAR Free. All models are available for order. Ordering information and delivery time are available from SBG Systems representatives and authorized SBG Systems dealers.
