SBG Systems has released a major firmware update for all its high-performance inertial navigation systems (INS), including its Ekinox, Apogee, Navsight and Quanta brand sensors.

Developed in collaboration with customers, firmware 4.0 provides new features and is designed to make integration easier for system designers. It aims to provide improvements in these areas:

System accuracy and robustness

  • Enhanced heading in a single antenna allows for easier UAV survey operations.
  • Improved GNSS antenna auto lever arm calibration provides a faster and easier system setup.

Easier system integration

  • New PTP and NTP features for time synchronization eliminate the need and cost of an external timing module.
  • An integrated NTRIP client eases access to NRTK/VRS correction services.
  • A logged RTCM raw stream eases post-processing in SBG Systems’ post-processing software Qinertia using the user’s NRTK/VRS data.
  • A new Access Rights Management System sets up specific user roles.
  • Two serial outputs have been added on Navsight and Quanta for advanced survey setups.
  • REST API has been introduced for power users and integrators.
