The Case: Since 2007 SBG Systems delivers high performance and cost-effective MEMS-based Motion Reference Unit (MRU) and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) to the Marine industry (40% of its turn over). Its products are mainly used in Offhore, Marine, and Underwater applications. In February 2014, SBG Systems released the Ekinox Subsea Series, a new product range of high accuracy inertial systems operational up to 6,000m.

The Company
SBG Systems is a supplier of MEMS-based inertial motion sensing solutions. The company provides a wide range of inertial systems from miniature to high accuracy. Combined with cutting-edge calibration techniques and advanced embedded algorithms, SBG Systems products are ideal solutions for Aerospace, Land, and especially Marine (surface and subsea) projects such as vessel motion monitoring, ROV & AUV control, Hydrography and Buoy positioning.
    
The Tech
SBG Systems designs, manufactures, and calibrates all its products. SBG Systems adds value to its inertial systems by designing specific data fusion algorithms and calibration techniques to enhance sensors’ performance.
SBG Systems offers Motion Reference Units, Inertial Measurement Units and Inertial Navigation Systems.
The new Ekinox series provides 0.05° Attitude, 5 cm Heave on four monitoring points, and 2 cm position (GNSS enhanced). It accepts aiding data from DVL, Dual Antenna GPS, USBL, etc. With additional NMEA protocol and Ethernet communication, Ekinox is appears as a cost-effective alternative solution to FOG technology for Marine applications. With its subsea enclosure, the Ekinox Subsea Series, released in February 2014, is operationnal up to 6,000m.
