SBG Systems unveils Qinertia INS/GNSS post-processing software

April 3, 2017  - By

Qinertia, SBG Systems’ new in-house post-processing software, gives access to offline real-time kinematic (RTK) corrections, and processes inertial and GNSS raw data to further enhance accuracy and secure a survey.

SBG Systems will unveil new software for the surveying industry at the Ocean Business show, held in Southamptom, United Kingdom, April 4-6.

For more than 10 years, SBG Systems has been designing inertial navigation systems from the internal inertial measurement unit (IMU) to filtering with GNSS data. Expert in real-time data fusion, the company takes another step in the surveying industry by unveiling Qinertia, a fully in-house post-processing kinematic (PPK) software. Whether the survey is made from a car, a UAV, a plane or a vessel, Qinertia will secure and enhance the acquisition.

Virtual Base Station

After the mission, Qinertia gives access to offline RTK corrections from more than 7,000 base stations in 164 countries. By creating a virtual base station near your project, the software delivers the highest level of accuracy without having to set up a base station, the company said.

Trajectory and orientation are then greatly improved by processing inertial data and raw GNSS observables in forward and backward directions. Qinertia also secures the survey by fixing afterwards lever arms or sensor misalignment.

Qinertia has been designed to help surveyors get the most of their surveys with simplicity. Surveyors can begin a project with a step-by step wizard, access an always up-to-date reference station database, and consult advanced quality indicators. With 64 bits and a multi-core design, Qinertia is fast processing software.

Qinertia will be available in the fourth quarter of this year. A public beta test program will begin early this summer.
