The Inertial Navigation System (INS) provides real-time roll, pitch, and heading information used for antenna pointing application and vehicle heading.

The INS outputs filtered orientation (Pan/Tilt) and position remains robust in case of GPS/GNSS outages (trees, buildings, tunnels, etc.).

Tips

To get the best performance, INS and antenna(s) should be installed in the same reference frame. Antenna lever arms should remain the same.

Ellipse Micro IMU delivers 1,000 Hz raw data for precise real-time turret stabilization.

SBG inertial sensors are highly resistant to shock and vibration. They also embed specific algorithms to filter vibration. When choosing the right inertial sensor, note that the A3 accelerometer (16g) is the right option for harsh environments.
