SBG Systems and Hexagon unite to deliver enhanced mapping and surveying accuracy with integration of Qinertia and HxGN SmartNet.
SBG Systems, a leading provider of inertial navigation solutions, and Hexagon, a global leader in positioning and mapping technologies, are excited to announce their collaboration to offer improved accuracy and seamless integration for mapping applications.
HxGN SmartNet provides comprehensive GNSS positioning services covering a wide range of regions, ensuring global availability and reliability. Its vast network of reference stations is strategically placed to provide extended correction data, while precise point positioning technology ensures truly global coverage.
Qinertia, developed by SBG Systems, is a powerful post-processing software. It is designed to enhance the location data accuracy by combining INS measurements with GNSS location and correction data. Its exclusive algorithms allow to achieve centimeter-level accuracy. The recent launch of Qinertia 4 can now leverage the power of HxGN SmartNet’s 5000 reference stations mainly across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific regions.
Customers having HxGN SmartNet license can use their credentials in Qinertia to gain access to correction data. This synergy between the two technologies elevates the user experience, offering consistent positioning information, and maximizing accuracy.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with HxGN SmartNet and provide our users with integrated solutions that set a new standard in mapping accuracy,” said Léa Lian, Product Manager at SBG Systems. “The seamless compatibility between both solutions simplifies workflows and delivers precise and reliable positioning data “.
“Partnering with SBG systems creates the exciting opportunity to enhance user mapping data,” said Christoph Storm, Director of Positioning Services at Hexagon. “This collaboration exemplifies our commitment to driving innovation in the industry and empowering customers with the most advanced technologies available”.
The data collected during surveying and mapping forms the foundation for various industries, including construction, infrastructure development, and environmental management. In the fast-evolving world of surveying and mapping, accuracy, speed, and efficiency have emerged as pivotal factors. Even the smallest error in measurements can lead to significant problems down the line, resulting in costly mistakes and delays. With industries relying heavily on precise measurements and streamlined workflows, these cutting-edge technologies have become essential for success.
