New INS/GNSS increases UAV-based surveying productivity

May 27th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

SBG Systems introduced its new line of inertial navigation systems (INS) dedicated to UAV-based surveying integrators. The company has designed a small, lightweight, and low-power inertial navigation system offered at two levels of accuracy. Quanta UAV and Quanta UAV Extra have been developed for compact lidar to high-end BVLOS mapping solutions. They provide precise orientation and centimetre level position data delivered both in real-time and post-processing. This direct geo-referencing solution reduces the need for overlapping. Designed as a geo-referencing solution, it can also be used as a high-end navigation solution to feed the UAV autopilot. Qinertia, SBG’s post-processing software completes the Quanta UAV offer. It gives access to offline RTK corrections from more than 7000 base stations located in 164 countries. Trajectory and orientation are improved by processing inertial data and raw GNSS observables in forward and backward directions. The software also computes the base station position to get a project to the centimetre accuracy. Qinertia is free for one year when buying a Quanta UAV sensor.
